Nothing impresses the committee more than a quality loss

NCAA Football: Minnesota at Iowa Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Golden Gophers did not drop out of the Top 10 after suffering their first loss of the season on Saturday, checking in at No. 10 in the latest rankings from the College Football Playoff selection committee. The Gophers were ranked No. 8 a week ago.

Ohio State maintained their position at No. 2, firmly in the hunt for a playoff bid. Penn State advanced one spot to No. 8 after beating Indiana. Wisconsin and Michigan checked in at No. 12 and No. 13, respectively. Iowa moved up to No. 17 after their upset of the Gophers.
