See where the Big Ten landed in the latest rankings.

NCAA Basketball: Purdue at Ohio State Columbus Dispatch-USA TODAY NETWORK

The AP and USA Today Coaches’ polls released earlier this week for Week 11 of the season and six Big Ten teams were fortunate enough to make the cut. It’s an impressive achievement for the league and that’s not even to mention two other Big Ten teams who narrowly missed a spot in the top 25.

Here is where the Big Ten landed:

Week 11 AP Poll:

  • No. 4 - Michigan
  • No. 7 - Ohio State
  • No. 8 - Iowa
  • No. 12 - Illinois
  • No. 19 - Wisconsin
  • No. 24 - Purdue
  • Receiving Votes: Minnesota, Rutgers

Week 11 USA Today Coaches’ Poll

  • No. 4 - Michigan
  • No. 8 - Iowa
  • No. 9 - Ohio State
  • No. 13 - Illinois
  • No. 20 - Wisconsin
  • Receiving Votes: Minnesota, Purdue, Rutgers

While it’s disappointing to see teams like Iowa and Minnesota drop, there’s still a lot to like here. Four teams in the top 15 and five in the top 20 is an impressive achievement. And that’s not even to mention the three other Big Ten teams currently receiving votes. The league remains stacked.

Perhaps the most intriguing question moving forward will be how high teams like Michigan and Ohio State can climb in the rankings. Michigan gets back into action after a COVID-19 pause and the Buckeyes will face Iowa. We’ll have to wait and see.
