After moving up two spots in the latest Coaches Poll to No. 11, the AP writers have done the same for Penn State. The Nittany Lions are up to No. 13 in the latest edition of the rankings.

The top three of Clemson, Alabama, and Georgia remains the same, but LSU is up two spots to No. 4, knocking Oklahoma (No. 5), and Ohio State (No. 6) back one spot each. 

Michigan now sits at No. 10 in both polls after its overtime victory over Army. Wisconsin, who has yet to give up a point, now sits at No. 14, up three spots from a week ago. Michigan State comes in at No. 18, Iowa at No. 19, and Maryland makes their first appearance in years at No. 21. Minnesota (1) was the only other Big Ten team to receive a vote.
