The Northwestern Wildcats moved to 5-0 on Saturday with a victory against the Indiana Hoosiers, and Pat Fitzgerald's team finds itself ranked No. 24 in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll. It's the first time since 2008 that the Wildcats have been ranked.

Northwestern moved into the poll with 143 points, and it is now one of only two undefeated Big Ten squads, alongside the No. 12 Ohio State Buckeyes. Ohio State's victory over Michigan State knocked the Spartans out of the top 25. Nebraska sits No. 21 after its win Saturday night against Wisconsin.

In the top five, the Florida State Seminoles leaped the LSU Tigers to No. 3. The Alabama Crimson Tide remain No. 1 overall with the Oregon Ducks right behind them. The Tigers are ranked No. 4 and the Georgia Bulldogs remained fifth.
