Three Big Ten teams were ranked in the second edition of the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) rankings, led by undefeated Iowa at No. 4 overall. The Hawkeyes improved to 8-0 for the first time in school history and moved up two spots to fourth, while being ranked first overall by the computers. Iowa's No. 4 position marks the highest ranking in program history, breaking the previous record when the team rated fifth during the last three polls of the 2002 campaign (Nov. 25, Dec. 2, Dec. 8). Two more conference schools moved up in the latest BCS poll, with Penn State climbing one spot to No. 12 and Ohio State jumping two positions to No. 17.
