NCAA Football: Big Ten Championship-Ohio State vs Wisconsin Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The AP Poll was released because, well, I guess it had to be? The Wisconsin Badgers (10-3 overall, 7-2 B1G) fell to No. 11, but remained ahead of the Penn State Nittany Lions (10-2 overall, 7-2 B1G) who fell to No. 13. The best part about this whole thing is that the Auburn Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide are tied at No. 9. Just excellent stuff right there.

The Coaches Poll which is even more irrelevant than the AP Poll also had the Badgers at No. 11, but featured the Nittany Lions at No. 12. It’s good to see that everyone still rates Wisconsin higher than Penn State, I suppose.

The other B1G teams in the polls include Ohio State at No. 2 in the AP and Coaches, Penn State at No. 13/12, Minnesota at No. 16/16, Michigan at No. 17/17 and Iowa at No. 19/19.

LSU, Ohio State, Clemson and Oklahoma were the top-four in both of these polls and also in the CFP Rankings.

As for the rest of the rankings and bowl destinations? We will find out the New Year’s Six bowl match ups and the rest of the CFP rankings at 2 p.m. CT on ESPN, so stay tuned.
