NCAA Football: Penn State at Michigan State Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

Penn State’s off week didn’t affect their standing in both the AP and Coaches Polls.

All three undefeated teams in the conference were off this weekend. Ohio State remains at No. 3, as does Minnesota at No. 13 and Michigan at No. 14. Wisconsin jumped up two spots to 16th, while Iowa climbed one to No. 19.

In the Coaches Poll, the Nittany Lions stayed put at the five spot. The Buckeyes (No. 4), and the Golden Gophers also remained at No. 4 and No. 13 respectively, while the Wolverines (No. 14), Badgers (No. 16), and Hawkeyes (No. 18) all moved up one. When will 7-2 Indiana get some love in the rankings? The Hoosiers received 44 votes in this week’s poll.

The year’s first College Football Rankings will be released Tuesday night, and Penn State takes on Minnesota Saturday at noon on ABC.
