College Football Rankings, Week 12: Four Of Five Big Ten Teams Move Up In USA Today Coaches Poll

Four of five ranked Big Ten teams moved up in the USA Today Coaches Poll after wins on Saturday, including Wisconsin who had their way with Minnesota.

Five Big Ten teams sit in the Top 25 of the USA Today Coaches Poll and four of five moved up in the rankings after wins on Saturday.

Michigan State currently ranks the highest amongst all ranked Big Ten teams, as they moved up to No. 12. They take over the top spot from Penn State, who fell from No. 12 to No. 21 after their loss to the now No. 16 Nebraska Cornhuskers. Penn State, as if things in Happy Valley weren't bad enough, was the only Big Ten team to drop in the polls. 

Wisconsin moved up a spot after maintaining control of the axe vs. Minnesota yesterday. Michigan also moved up (to No. 18) after beating the Fighting Illini.
