College Football Rankings: Big Ten Dominant In Middle Of Week 10 Polls

The Big Ten lost a little ground in the Week 10 AP Poll and the Week 10 USA Today coaches poll. But no conference dominates the murky middle of the college football rankings quite like the Big Ten.

There's Nebraska, No. 9 in both polls despite a loss to No. 17 coaches/No. 19 AP Wisconsin. The Badgers fell because of a loss to Ohio State, unranked but receiving votes, and Nebraska sprang forward after taking down No. 15 AP/No. 16 coaches Michigan State. And then there are Michigan (No. 13 in both polls) and Penn State (No. 15 coaches/No. 16 AP), just sort of hanging out in the middle of the teens.

That's five ranked Big Ten teams, none higher than No. 9 nor lower than No. 19. If that doesn't sound like a conference with no dominant team to you, you should probably check your ears.
