Four Big Ten teams ranked in top 10 of final AP poll

Bowl season didn’t go as planned for the Big Ten, which went 3-7, including a 1-3 clip in New Year’s Six games.

But the voters knew how good the Big Ten was all season, and that fact was evident in the final AP poll that includes a quartet of Big Ten teams in the top 10.

No. 6 Ohio State leads the way, as it did much of the season, while No. 7 Penn State, the Big Ten champion, No. 9 Wisconsin and No. 10 Michigan round out the top 10.
