We've got a top-10 showdown in the Big Ten.
There was little movement atop the polls with all of the top 10 teams either winning or inactive, but Indiana remained inside the top 10 of both polls as a result.
Saturday's matchup at noon will be the first time Ohio State has ever faced a top-10 Indiana team. The previously highest-ranked Hoosier team to play the Buckeyes was in 1944, when No. 15 Indiana lost 21-7 to No. 3 Ohio State in Columbus.
This is also only the fourth time Ohio State has ever faced a ranked Indiana team. The Buckeyes are 2-0-1 when facing the Hoosiers as a ranked team and 2-0 when playing in Columbus. The lone tie was in 1990 when the unranked Buckeyes tied No. 22 Indiana, 27-27, in Bloomington.
Ohio State held steady in the AP Poll this week, but Indiana climbed to No. 9 after its shutout win over Michigan State.
Four Big Ten teams crack this week's AP Poll, with Ohio State and Indiana leading the way. Behind the Buckeyes and the Hoosiers, at No. 3 and No. 9 respectively, Wisconsin climbs to No. 10 after blowing out Michigan and Northwestern jumps to No. 19 after a win over Purdue.
Here's the full AP Poll:
|2||NOTRE DAME||8–0||1,467 (1)||2||ACC|
|3||OHIO STATE||3–0||1,445 (1)||3||Big Ten|

Though there was no movement in the top 11 of the Coaches Poll, the Buckeyes did lose one first-place vote, receiving two votes this week compared to last week's three, with that extra vote now going to Alabama.
The coaches poll includes four Big Ten teams, all of which are undefeated. Ohio State leads the way at No. 3 after this week's game against Maryland was canceled, with Indiana following at No. 10 after a shutout win over Michigan State. Wisconsin moves up to No. 12 after a blowout win over Michigan and Northwestern climbs three spots to No. 20 after a win over Purdue.
