Dave1291 Posted October 3, 2021 Share Posted October 3, 2021 One of the sportswriters I know just cranked this out. Who knows? When the AP college football rankings are released later today, there is a chance the Big Ten will have five teams ranked in the top 12. And that has ever been done in the conference's rich history since the poll began in 1936, to my knowledge. Penn State (5-0) and Iowa (5-0) should be at No. 3 and 4, respectively. (They meet Saturday in Iowa City). Ohio State (4-1) will jump from No. 11 to No. 8 in all probability since No. 8 Arkansas, No. 9 Notre Dame and No. 10 Florida each lost. Behind the Buckeyes closely will be Michigan (5-0) and Michigan State (5-0). The Wolverines likely will make the biggest jump in the polls this week from their No. 14 spot after whipping Wisconsin 38-17. Pollsters will be careful to keep Oregon, upset 31-24 at Stanford in overtime, one slot ahead of the Buckeyes. Cincinnati, meanwhile, may jump past Oklahoma to No. 5, after winning at Notre Dame and suddenly appears to have a great chance at becoming the first Group-of-Five team to make the College Football Playoff. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
