Week 14 polls: Four Big Ten teams remain in Top 8 of AP and Coaches

The latest AP and Coaches polls released on Sunday both featured four Big Ten teams in the top 8.

Ohio State remained at No. 2 in both polls following their double-overtime win over Michigan. The loss dropped the Wolverines to No. 5 in the AP poll, with Wisconsin right behind them at No. 6. Michigan and Wisconsin’s spots are reversed in the Coaches poll, with the Badgers checking in at No. 5 ahead of the No. 6 Wolverines.

Penn State remained at No. 8 in both polls.

Despite a lopsided loss Friday, Nebraska held onto a spot in both (No. 23 in AP, No. 22 in Coaches). Iowa broke into the rankings with their 40-10 defeat of the Huskers, registering one spot ahead of Nebraska in the AP at No. 22 and three spots behind them in the Coaches at No. 25.
