Only two Big Ten teams are ranked in the latest Coaches Poll, released Sunday, and the highest team comes in at No. 20. That would be Nebraska, of course, which didn't move up this week despite rallying from 17 points down to knock off then-No. 23 Wisconsin. Fresh off its win over Indiana, 5-0 Northwestern debuts in the poll at No. 22.

Michigan State dropped out of the poll following its home loss to Ohio State, but it is receiving 45 votes. Three other Big Ten teams are receiving votes: Michigan (8), Purdue (6) and Wisconsin (6).
Ohio State, which moved to 5-0 with its win at Michigan State, is not eligible for the Coaches Poll.
