The Michigan Wolverines are still unblemished through 10 games this season and entered the top ten of the AP Poll last week. After another drubbing of a ranked conference opponent, they have continued their climb through the rankings.

Michigan rose to No. 7 this week, which is their highest point yet this season. Six Big Ten teams are ranked this week with Iowa once again leading the way at No. 5. Behind them are Michigan, Wisconsin (No. 9), Illinois (No. 14), Ohio State (No. 21), and Minnesota (No. 23).

The top six teams in the country went unchanged this week with Gonzaga and Baylor continuing to lead the way.

Here is the full poll from this week:
