College Basketball Rankings 2012: Big 10 With Only Team In Top 10 Of Coaches Poll

Thanks to the Wisconsin Badgers' upset road victory over the Ohio State Buckeyes on Sunday, the Big 10 will enter the week with only one team— the Michigan State Spartans, at No. 5– in the top ten of this week's USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll. Ohio State isn't far behind, falling only No. 11, but this week's Coaches Poll rankings accurately reflect a conference that may lack a top line team but is solid and deep.

After the Spartans and Buckeyes, the Wisconsin Badgers check in at No. 15, one spot ahead of the Michigan Wolverines, who dropped slightly in the poll after getting blown out this past weekend by the Purdue Boilermakers. Rounding out the rankings for the Big 10 is the Indiana Hoosiers, who are tabbed this week as the No. 20 team in the country.

Here's this week's full Top 25, in tweet form:
