Five Big Ten teams are among the top 25 in the latest Associated Press (AP) or USA Today coaches polls and the first Harris Interactive poll, as Ohio State appears in the No. 1 spot in all three rankings. The Buckeyes received 34 first-place votes from the media, 49 first-place votes from the coaches and 79 first-place votes from Harris voters to give the Big Ten the nation's top-ranked team for the first time since Dec. 2, 2007, when OSU was ranked first in all three polls. Other Big Ten schools among the top 25 include No. 13/11/12 Michigan State (AP/USA Today/Harris), No. 15/14/15 Iowa, No. 18/16/16 Wisconsin and No. -/24/24 Michigan. The Wolverines were also No. 26 in the AP rankings. Northwestern received votes in all three polls, while Illinois received votes in the Harris poll. The Big Ten and SEC are the only conferences to feature four or more teams among the top 20 in all three polls.
