After a wild Week 10 which saw top-10 teams Georgia, Notre Dame, TCU and Washington all stumble, Penn State saw its ranking in both of the major polls rise on Sunday afternoon as they moved up three spots in the Associated Press Top-25 to NO. 13 and two spots in the Amway Coaches Poll, landing at No. 11. 

Undefeateds Alabama and Miami top both polls after victories over Mississippi State and Notre Dame on Saturday night. However, after the top two, disagreement runs rampant between the two polls. Oklahoma, who defeated previously top-ten squad TCU on Saturday, sits third in the AP Poll, but comes in at No. 5 in the Coaches. The Big Ten's only undefeated team, Wisconsin, who demolished Iowa on Saturday comes in at No. 4 in the Coaches' Poll and No. 5 in the AP. 

Other Big Ten schools ranked in Week 11 are No. 8/8 Ohio State, No. 19/18 Michigan, and No. 22/24 Michigan State.
