The Ohio State is on the move again in the CBS Sports 131, our comprehensive ranking of every FBS college football team. One week after jumping ahead of Alabama for No. 2, the Buckeyes have surged to the No. 1 spot in the rankings. Georgia may have avoided an upset at the hands of Missouri on Saturday but it was not able to hold on to No. 1 in the eyes of our CBS Sports and 247Sports experts. The Bulldogs fell to No. 3, opening the door for Ohio State to take over as the new top dog. 

This is the fifth time in six different 2022 editions of the CBS Sports 131 that we have a different combination of Ohio State, Alabama and Georgia in the top three, but it's the first time the Buckeyes have been at No. 1. This also positions the CBS Sports 131 in opposition to the AP Top 25 poll and the Coaches Poll; both of those rankings reacted to the Week 5 outcomes by putting the Crimson Tide at No. 1 and leaving Ohio State at No. 3. 

Every voter has their own process, but it's likely that Ohio State's ascension to No. 1 is not a dramatic reaction to the specifics of a 49-10 home win against Rutgers. The Buckeyes have been engaged in this debate as one of the top teams in the country since the offseason, and they have showcased their balance and depth across a 5-0 start that saw multiple key players miss games yet the production has continued to be elite. While Georgia and Alabama have each narrowly avoided upsets, Ohio State has showcased consistent dominance throughout much of its season. 

Other interesting notes from this week's update of the CBS Sports 131 include a bump up for Clemson following its impressive win against NC State, jumping USC for the No. 5 spot behind Michigan, and some massive shakeup outside of the top 10. Week 5 was a "prove-it" week for a lot of undefeated and one-loss teams, and the ones who maintained their hot start to 2022 saw big rewards in the rankings. TCU, Kansas and UCLA all won as underdogs to maintain their unbeaten status and saw double-digit moves up in the CBS Sports 131, while some one-loss teams like Mississippi State also got a bump up following a quality win in conference play.
