NCAA Football: Ohio State at Rutgers Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Ohio State is coming off of their second shutout win over Rutgers in as many years, and they finally made some headway in the rankings. With several top-ranked teams ending up with a loss in Week 5, the Buckeyes had some wiggle room to get back into the top-10 of the AP Poll, at No. 10.

Penn State kept the top spot for any Big Ten team at No. 4 with a win over Indiana — Saquon Barkley is like the Superman of college football. Michigan moved up to No. 7 following their early bye week, and Wisconsin also moved up one to No. 9 after a close first half against Northwestern.

Bill Connelly's S&P+ ratings are included this week because Ohio State sits at No. 2 on that list and that’s fun.
