Here's how Ryan Day voted in the final Coaches Poll
Ryan Day repeatedly said that he believed his team was the best in the country after Ohio State defeated Wisconsin in the B1G Championship Game, finishing the year 13-0. He reflected that in his Coaches Poll ballot, too.
Day ranked the Buckeyes in the No. 1 spot, ahead of the likes of LSU, Clemson and Oklahoma. He also showed some respect to Wisconsin and Penn State, ranking them at No. 8 and No. 9 respectively.
In total, Day had six B1G teams in his top 25. Below is his final ballot:
- Ohio State
- Penn State
- Notre Dame
- Boise State
- Appalachian State
- Oklahoma State
Obviously, Day’s pitch to get Ohio State at No. 1 fell short, as the Buckeyes were No. 2 in the College Football Playoff rankings. The Buckeyes take on Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl.
