Not everyone thinks a national championship game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and Florida State Seminoles is a foregone conclusion.

Buckeyes’ head coach Urban Meyer knows where his team belongs.

“I have Ohio State in the top five,” Meyer said during his weekly press conference on Monday via Austin Ward of ESPN.com. “I believe we have Alabama, Ohio State, Florida State.”

The Stanford Cardinal’s victory over the Oregon Ducks isn’t what swayed Meyer’s opinion. In fact, he’s been voting the same way all season.

“I had us No. 2 all year,” Meyer added. “And I just think we’re playing like one of the top teams in the country right now.”

The Buckeyes have only one real quality win to speak of this season, a 31-24 home victory over the 24th-ranked Wisconsin Badgers back on September 28.

The Buckeyes won’t finish the season very strong either – they’ll be in Illinois to take on the Fighting Illini Saturday, host the Indiana Hoosiers on November 23 and end their regular season by traveling to Michigan to take on their struggling rival, the Wolverines.

A week later, they’ll play in the Big 10 Championship game, likely against the winner of this week’s between the Michigan State Spartans and Nebraska Cornhuskers.
