Fan Pulse Week 6: Penn State Enters the Top Ten

The Buckeyes move ahead of Georgia and the Spartans drop out of the poll after Week Six

NCAA Football: Wisconsin at Nebraska Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

Five Big Ten teams remain in the SBNation FanPulse poll after six weeks of play. Ohio State continues their relentless march up the polls after a dominant victory over a previously-ranked Michigan State squad.

Nebraska’s next opponent, Minnesota (UNDEFEATED MINNESOTA) is in the “Also receiving votes” category. Minnesota fans have their team ranked #21 (so, does that mean they think South Dakota State is #22, Fresno State is #23 and Georgia Southern is #24)?

Michigan’s slide in the polls was stopped by their boring win over equally boring Iowa. That was the only game that kept the Battle for NU from being the B1G-est game of the week.

Alabama and Clemson continue to be the overall #1 and #2 according to fans. Nebraska voters see it a little differently as they have the Buckeyes #1 overall. No real surprise there.

This week’s top 25:

Also receiving votes:

  • Baylor
  • Memphis
  • Minnesota
  • Michigan State
  • Cincinnati
