Wildcats ranked in BCS Standings for first time since 2008

For the first time this season, the Big Ten has two teams ranked in the BCS Standings. No. 24 Northwestern, which was idle last week, finds itself in the poll for the first time since 2008, while No. 16 Nebraska moved up four spots after winning at Michigan State.

Perfect Ohio State, which is ranked No. 5 in the AP Poll, is not eligible for the BCS Standings. Neither is 6-3 Penn State.

It’s not always a bad thing to have a bye week. Northwestern, which was idle in Week 10, moved up five spots, to No. 21, in the Coaches Poll, released Sunday. A week ago, the Wildcats were the top vote-getter of the non-ranked teams.

Legends Division leader Nebraska paces the Big Ten in the poll, at No. 16. Michigan (48) and Wisconsin (25) are receiving votes.
