The dust has finally settled on a crazy week of college football, and the latest polls have rewarded those who have survived the upsets.

A down year for the Big 10 is being magnified by the fact that not a single team from the conference is in the latest USA Today Coaches Poll.

Ohio State would have easily made the Top 25, however due to their probation they are excluded from voting. Plenty of teams from the conference are in the "Others Receiving Votes" category. Michigan is ranked 28th with 33 points. Other teams that got votes included Northwestern, Michigan State, Nebraska and Wisconsin.

Here is the complete standings.
