NCAA Football Rankings, Week 12: Big Ten with 2 teams in Coaches' Poll

Brace Hemmelgarn-US PRESSWIRE

Two teams from the Big Ten are ranked in the top 25 of the latest Coaches' Poll.

With their 17-3 win against Illinois on Saturday, the Minnesota Golden Gophers became bowl eligible at 6-4, but are still on the outside of the latest USA Today Coaches' Poll.

The Gophers were not among the teams receiving votes, although one 6-4 team did receive votes so it is possible Minnesota could move into the discussion if they pickup another win next week. Northwestern was ranked in the top 25 last week, but the Wildcats dropped out of the rankings after losing to Michigan on Saturday.

Once again, Nebraska was the top ranked Big Ten team. After moving to 8-2, the Cornhuskers moved up two spots in the rankings this week and are now No. 14. With its win against Northwestern, Michigan moved back into the rankings, coming in at No. 23.

Wisconsin and Northwestern both received votes this week, with Wisconsin just outside the top 25 at No. 27. After being ranked No. 21 last week, Northwestern dropped to No. 33 this week. The complete top 25 can be found below.
