Big Ten occupies three of top five spots in latest AP poll

The Big Ten boasts three top 5 teams in the latest AP poll, released Sunday. It has three of the top 6 in the Coaches poll.

Ohio State remains No. 2 for the second straight week, while Michigan moved up one spot, to No. 3, and No. 5 Wisconsin makes its 2016 top 5 debut.

With Penn State at No. 8, the Big Ten makes up half of the top 8, just as it did in last week’s College Football Playoff. No. 17 Nebraska rounds out the Big Ten’s ranked contingent.
