The Nittany Lions have jumped two spots to No. 9 in the Coaches Poll after their 34-27 win over the Indiana Hoosiers.

Elsewhere in the Big Ten, Ohio State stays put at No. 2 after dismantling Rutgers. Minnesota drops four spots to No. 11 after coming up short in Iowa City, while Michigan moves to No. 12 after an impressive win over Michigan State. Wisconsin moves up one spot after taking care of Nebraska in Lincoln, while the Hawkeyes rise to No. 20 after that win over the Golden Gophers.

The Hoosiers were the only other Big Ten team to receive votes, while former foe Pitt received seven votes.
