Projecting the top 25: Could there be four B1G teams in the top 10?
Sometimes, it’s not bad to have a bye week.
Nebraska and Wisconsin were the benefactors of some stumbles in the back end of the top 10. While teams like Houston, Tennessee and Miami suffered their first losses, Wisconsin and Nebraska will likely move up by default.
At least that’s how it figures to shake out in this week’s Associated Press rankings, which are set to come out at noon on Monday.
Wisconsin and Nebraska were at No. 11 and No. 12, respectively in last weeks poll. If both were to move up, it would put four B1G teams in the top 10 for the first time this year.
Here’s how the top 25 could look on Monday:
