Michigan State took over the top spot in the Top 25 amongst all Big Ten teams, moving up to No. 12 Penn State held last week. Penn State's loss to the now No. 16 Nebraska dropped them all the way to No. 21. Michigan moved up from No. 21 to No. 18 after their win over Illinois and Wisconsin moved up a spot to No. 13.

Ohio State's loss to Purdue didn't do them any favors in the polls as they find themselves on the outside looking in completely, not even receiving any votes as they did last week when they were still 6-3.
