The AP and USA Today Coaches’ polls were released earlier this week for Week 10 of the season and five Big Ten teams were fortunate enough to make the cut. Notably, all five teams ended up landing in the top 10 of this week’s rankings. All told, it was an encouraging performance for the Big Ten.

Here is where the Big Ten landed:

Week 10 AP Poll:

  • No. 8 - Michigan State
  • No. 11 - Ohio State
  • No. 12 - Maryland
  • No. 19 - Michigan
  • No. 20 - Penn State
  • Receiving Votes: Iowa, Purdue

Week 10 USA Today Coaches’ Poll

  • No. 8 - Michigan State
  • No. 12 - Ohio State
  • No. 14 - Maryland
  • No. 19 - Michigan
  • No. 20 - Penn State
  • Receiving Votes: Iowa, Wisconsin, Purdue

While it was disappointing to see Michigan and Ohio State slide over the last few weeks, it was encouraging to see Michigan State and Penn State rising up in the polls. Other teams like Iowa and Purdue also remain in serious consideration. Fans will hope a few more teams can get into the discussion in the coming weeks.

Either way, BTPowerhouse will continue to keep fans posted moving forward.
