BT Powerhouse Top 25: Week 17

Analysis after the jump

Big Ten Ranked Teams:

#1 Ohio State (27-2) : Ohio State moves back into the number one spot this week. They have a big target on their back in the final week of conference play. Penn State and Wisconsin want a piece of the number one team. Penn State needs to beat Ohio State to have a fighting chance to get into the NCAA Tournament, and with the game being at Penn State, it could be possible. Ohio State beat Illinois and Indiana at home this week.

#5 Purdue (24-5) : Purdue rises into the top five. They beat Indiana on the road and crushed Michigan State by 20 on the road. Purdue is making it's case for a one seed. They will have some work to do in the Big Ten Tournament, but win out and win the Big Ten Tournament by beating Ohio State and it could happen. Boiler Nation is rooting for Penn State and Wisconsin this week, as they want a piece of that Big Ten regular season title.

#9 Wisconsin (22-6) : Wisconsin downed Michigan and Northwestern this week. The buzzer beater against Michigan and the assault on Northwestern has given them the number nine spot this week. That gives the Big Ten three top 10 teams. Wisconsin can improve NCAA seeding by beating Ohio State on Sunday.. I know Purdue will be rooting for them.

If you have any questions about why I put the non-Big Ten teams where I put them in the BT Powerhouse Top 25, feel free to leave your questions in the comments.
