The Nittany Lions fell in both major polls following their 31-26 loss to the undefeated Minnesota Golden Gophers on Saturday.
They dropped six spots down to No. 11 in the Coaches Poll, while the Gophers moved up six to No. 7. Ohio State moved two spots up to No. 2, while Michigan held steady at No. 14 in their bye week. Wisconsin moved up one to No. 15 after their win over Iowa, who drops to No. 22. Indiana sneaks in for the first time this season at No.25
|2||Ohio State (5)||9-0||1,523||4|
Over in the AP Poll, the Nittany Lions dropped just four spots to No. 9, with the Gophers rising to No. 7. Ohio State moves up one to No. 2, with Michigan and Wisconsin checking in at No. 14 and No. 15, respectively. Iowa dropped to No. 23, while Indiana checks in at No. 24. Illinois (!) was the only other Big Ten team to receive votes. Remarkably, it's the first time since 1994 that Indiana is ranked in the AP poll, breaking the longest Power Five streak in the country. Purdue now has the longest drought, dating back to 2007.
Keep in mind that neither of these polls matter all that much anymore with the College Football Playoff rankings now being released weekly. Those will come out on Tuesday evening.
