There’s little change from last week other than Iowa and Northwestern swapping the bottom two spots.

Minnesota has made a move up the national rankings, however. This week’s #24 slot is up 14 places from last week. For the record, PSU was 114 nationally last week.

Note: These rankings are calculated using Ken Pomeroy’s adjusted offensive and defensive ratings. My formula is different than Pomeroy’s Pythogorean methodology but does result in the same ordinal ranking for all the teams.
