Seven ranked teams lost on Saturday. That led to some major changes in the new Coaches Poll.
In the Big Ten, both Ohio State and Michigan are safely in the Top 5 thanks to Louisville’s 63-20 rout of then-No. 2 Florida State. Ohio State is No. 2. Michigan is No. 5.
But the Big Ten also has a new ranked team: Nebraska.
The Huskers won a 35-32 thriller against then-No. 21 Oregon, with Tommy Armstrong giving Nebraska the lead on a 34-yard touchdown run with 2:29 remaining. Nebraska is now ranked No. 20 at 3-0.

Michigan State remained No. 8 after winning 36-28 at ranked Notre Dame. Wisconsin is now No. 10 after being 12th during a 23-17 win against Georgia State.
One Big Ten team not happy with today’s new poll is Iowa. The Hawkeyes were ranked No. 11 but lost to North Dakota State, 23-21. The Bison are the five-time defending Football Championship Subdivision national champions. Iowa hung on in the Coaches Poll, ranking No. 25.
Here’s the Top 10 and the ranked Big Ten teams:
1. Alabama (59 first-place votes)
2. Ohio State (3), up 2
3. Clemson (1)
5. Michigan, held spot
8. Michigan State, held spot
