After taking the week off, Penn State stayed at No. 7 in the AP Poll.

After a hilarious blowout loss at home during homecoming at the hands of the Boilermakers, Iowa dropped all the way down to No. 11. Ohio State is now the highest-ranked team in the conference at No. 5, followed by Michigan at No. 6. Michigan State moved up one spot to No. 9. And finally, Purdue entered the top-25 after their aforementioned upset, coming in at No. 25!

Outside of the Big Ten, Auburn re-entered the poll at No. 19, which is a nice boost for the Nittany Lions' resume.
