The Minnesota Golden Gophers have returned to the Coaches Poll after a brief absence, clocking in at No. 22 in the latest rankings. The Gophers were ranked No. 18 in the preseason Coaches Poll before dropping out once the season started without the Big Ten. But now that the Big Ten has decided to return to play, Big Teams are back among the ranked.
From the Big Ten, Ohio State checked in at No. 10, Penn State at No. 13, Wisconsin at No. 17, and Michigan at No. 19. Iowa, ranked No. 23 in the preseason poll, did not make the cut.
As for the AP Top 25, poll voters will be allowed to include Big Ten teams starting next week.
