Michigan falls, predictably. The Wolverines are down to 14th in the AP poll and 13th in the Coaches. Not a catastrophic drop, but one that represents reality right now. While this team has the potential talent of a top-510 team, there are still enough questions as to who is the go-to scorer, and how the team deals with hostile environments, and what impact Mitch McGary will have on the team as he gets back into game shape.

Michigan State has claimed the top spot in both polls and Ohio State is still in the top ten. WIsconsin made a big jump after beating Florida last week. Indiana is still hanging around the top-25, and Iowa jumped in the final spot of the Coaches poll as well (Iowa State makes an appearance near the end of the AP poll).
