Though USA TODAY is having technical difficulties updating their Coaches Poll page for the second time in as many weeks (and subsequently why the Coaches Poll Top 25 was delayed this week), the poll has finally seen the light of day and the Buckeyes remain 3rd for yet another week.
While the AP Top 25 featured but Ohio State at #4 and Wisconsin at #25, the Coaches Poll is slightly more favorable to the Big Ten with Nebraska #21 and Michigan inexplicably still ranked at #24. The Wolverines lost in 4 OTs at Penn State Saturday after struggles with Akron at home and winless UConn on the road in previous weeks.
Here is the USA TODAY Coaches Poll Top 25 in its entirety for the week of October 13th (Week 8):
