After a sleep-inducing win over Rutgers, Penn State's place in the AP and Coaches Polls remained essentially unchanged. In the Coaches Poll, the Lions moved up one spot from No. 12 to No. 11 and remained still at No. 12 in the AP Poll.

Around the rest of the Big Ten, Ohio State stuck at No. 2 in both polls. Wisconsin moved up to No. 10 in both polls, jumping up from No. 14 in the Coaches and No. 13 in the AP. Minnesota dropped to No. 15 in both. Michigan and Iowa appeared back-to-back at Nos. 18 and 19 in the Coaches Poll, and Nos. 17 and 18 in the AP.
