After moving up one spot to No. 12 in the Coaches Poll, the Nittany Lions also moved up to No. 10 in the AP Poll after a rock-solid win over Ball State in front of the Beaver Stadium faithful. The move, along with Auburn's move up, sets up a No. 10 vs. No. 22 showdown in Happy Valley next week.

Elsewhere in the Big Ten, Iowa is now the highest-ranked team in the conference at No. 5 after its rivalry win over Iowa State. Ohio State drops down to No. 9 after its upset loss at the hands of the Oregon Ducks (who move up to No. 4 themselves). Wisconsin remains in the top-25 at No. 18 after a comfortable win, and Michigan enters the poll at No. 25 with a pair of nice wins to start the season.
