Not a whole lot of surprises here, but Michigan State moves up into the top 10 for Adam. I still have Wisconsin one spot ahead of the Spartans, but it's so close I can see the case for it going either way. Looking forward to seeing how Michigan State handles another common opponent this week when Minnesota goes to East Lansing. ... I'd say we look pretty smart for keeping Ohio State ahead of Baylor while some voters were doing the opposite. ... Big Ten teams have played three teams we currently have ranked: Arizona State, UCLA and Northern Illinois. And they lost to all three of them. ... Minnesota's time in the Top 25 came to an end with its loss to the Badgers. I came away impressed with the Gophers' toughness and defensive effort last week. The program just desperately needs more skill players on offense.

What does your top 25 look like this week?
