Big Ten claims three of Top 6 spots in latest AP, Coaches polls

Big Ten claims three of Top 6 spots in latest AP, Coaches polls

Following Clemson’s loss to Syracuse, the No. 2 ranking opened up for the taking, and Penn State slid into that second spot in Sunday’s latest AP and Coaches Polls. Not bad for their bye week.

More good news for the Big Ten is found in the Top 6 spots of both polls, as Wisconsin (No. 5 AP/No. 5 Coaches) and Ohio State (No. 6/No. 6) both moved up. The Big Ten now occupies half of the Top 6, and Michigan State (No. 18/No. 19) and Michigan (No. 19/No. 15) round out the conference’s residency in both polls.

No. 1 Alabama continues to top both polls.

See both polls below.
