Whew. If you like Hail Mary endings, overtimes and top-10 thrillers, this was the weekend for you.
Someone, voters had to make sense of it all.
In the Big Ten, Ohio State leads the conference in the new Coaches Poll at No. 2, holding strong despite No. 3 Clemson’s 42-36 win against then-No. 4 Louisville. Alabama is still No. 1. Ohio State has three first-place votes, one more than Clemson. Alabama has 57 No. 1 votes.
Michigan, after Saturday’s 14-7 win against then-No. 8 Wisconsin, moved up one spot to No. 4. The Badgers dropped from No. 8 to No. 13 with the loss.
Nebraska stayed undefeated with a win against Illinois, completing a rally to get to 5-0. The Huskers jumped from No. 15 to No. 12.
Finally, Michigan State fell out of the poll following the overtime loss at Indiana. The Spartans were ranked No. 16.
Here’s the top 10 and the ranked Big Ten teams:
2. Ohio State
7. Texas A&M
10. Miami (Fla.)
Five teams dropped out of the poll: Michigan State, TCU, Georgia, San Diego State and Texas. The new ranked teams are No. 19 Boise State, No. 20 West Virginia, No. 22 Oklahoma, No. 23 Colorado and No. 25 Western Michigan.
