That was quick: Big Ten teams once again eligible for the upcoming college football poll
You can expect a number of college football teams to drop in the rankings this weekend, even after having yet to take the field for a single game this season.
The strangest college football season we’ve ever experienced continues to take odd twists and turns with the Big Ten now committed to playing this fall after weeks of publicly touting its decision to postpone its season.
Once the college football season arrived and the Big Ten appeared settled in its plan to sit the fall season out, the Coaches Poll and the AP Poll made the decision to remove those league teams from their respective weekly rankings.
Following the official confirmation that the Big Ten is now committed to playing in the fall, USA TODAY Sports, which sponsors the Coaches Poll, has announced Big Ten teams can once again be featured in the poll.
The next poll release is set for Sunday, Sept. 20, and it will undoubtedly feature some teams from the Big Ten after those teams were dropped from the poll in Sunday’s updated poll.
The Big Ten is set to return to action on Oct. 24, while the SEC is set to begin its season on Sept. 26.
