The Minnesota Golden Gophers are not ranked in the Associated Press top 25 after losing to Northwestern.
For the eighth consecutive week, the Minnesota Golden Gophers are not ranked in the Associated Press top 25.
The Golden Gophers fell to 4-2 on Saturday with their second consecutive loss. After starting 4-0 in the non-conference portion of the schedule, Minnesota has lost its first two Big Ten games. Even when they were 4-0, Minnesota was off the AP radar as it didn't receive a vote at any point this season.
Now, with back-to-back losses, Minnesota is likely a ways off from receiving votes in the poll. While Minnesota isn't ranked, two Big Ten teams are ranked in the Week 8 poll. Ohio State improved to 7-0 with a win over Indiana and moved up one spot in the AP poll and are now No. 7. Michigan dominated Indiana 45-0 and moved up two spots to No. 23.
