Seven Big Ten teams are receiving votes in the Associated Press (AP) or USA Today coaches polls, including four teams among the top 25. Ohio State pushed its winning streak to 17 straight games and remained undefeated at 5-0 overall to maintain its position at No. 4 in the AP poll and No. 3 in the USA Today rankings. Northwestern, which had a bye and will host the Buckeyes next Saturday, moved up one spot in each poll to No. 16 in the media vote and No. 15 in the coaches tally. The Wildcats cracked the top 15 of the national polls for the first time since the 2001 campaign, when the program rose to No. 14 in the Sept. 30 AP poll. Michigan remained among the top 20 at No. 19 in the AP vote and No. 17 in the USA Today poll, while Nebraska returned to the top 25 at No. 25 in the coaches voting while receiving votes from the media. Michigan State and Wisconsin also received votes from both groups, while Iowa received a vote in the USA Today poll for the first time since Nov. 7, 2011.
