The Minnesota Gophers moved up one position, moving ahead of Michigan to 18th on the AP poll, but were one behind them in USA Today/Coaches poll.

The two other Big Ten teams ranked ahead of the Gophers are the Ohio State Buckeyes — seventh and sixth, respectively — and Purdue, which is 15th in both polls.

The Gophers, Buckeyes, Boilermakers and Badgers are all still undefeated, but the Buckeyes and Boilermakers have only played three games to the Gophers' and Badgers' 4-0 record.
