The Penn State Nittany Lions dropped four spots to No. 8 in this week's Coaches Poll.

The Iowa Hawkeyes moved up to No. 2 after their win, and Alabama's 41-38 loss to Texas A&M. The Crimson Tide dropped to No. 5 in the latest poll.

The Big Ten now has five teams in the Top 10 with Iowa, Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State and Michigan State. Penn State will face, or has faced, each of those other teams this season.
