How many Big Ten teams are going to be in the top 10 next week?
Fans are going to have to wait an extra day to find out. Because of the postponement of some Division-I games because of Hurricane Matthew, the Associated Press poll will not be released until Monday. The poll, which is typically released Sunday afternoon, is expected out about noon.
The AP poll release will be delayed until Monday afternoon. Tentative time for release is noon ET.

USA Today also announced its coaches poll — also typically released Sunday — would be delayed an extra day.
NOTE: Because of Georgia-South Carolina game on Sunday, Amway Coaches Poll will be released Monday afternoon by @USATODAYsports.
