Rutgers picked up two votes in the USA Today Coaches' poll for a total of four. I wouldn't be surprised if voters just looked at the final score and read a quick recap of the game, considering it was against an FCS opponent on local BTN coverage. Around the B1G, the entire conference gets shutout of the top ten after the shellacking yesterday. In the human polls, Michigan State leads all schools at #13, followed by Wisconsin. Interestingly enough, the Coaches' Poll has Ohio State ahead of Nebraska, while the AP poll excludes them altogether. I know the Huskers struggled against McNeese State, but J.T. Barrett is not an FBS quarterback. I'd still have Nebraska as the third best team in the B1G.
