2012 NCAA Football Rankings: Big Ten places 3 teams inside top 25 of BlogPoll

The Ohio State Buckeyes, Nebraska Cornhuskers, and Michigan Wolverines represent the Big Ten in the Week 11 BlogPoll from SB Nation.

Brace Hemmelgarn-US PRESSWIRE

The Week 11 BlogPoll is out and just three Big Ten teams make appearances in the top 25. Ohio State, ineligible for the postseason, carries the banner for the conference at No. 9. The Buckeyes are one of four remaining undefeated teams in the FBS, but bowl sanctions make these final two weeks of the regular season their de facto postseason. Ohio State faces Wisconsin this week, and then rival Michigan to close of the year.

Nebraska is the next highest rated team at No. 15. The Huskers held off Penn State to maintain the driver's seat in the Legends Division. They're tied atop the Division with Michigan at 5-1, but they beat the Wolverines in the teams' head-to-head matchup. Michigan will have to hope that either Minnesota or Iowa knock off Nebraska in the final two weeks of the season. The Golden Gophers head to Lincoln this weekend trying to play spoiler. Here's this week's complete BlogPoll:
