Hoosiers hold same spot in both polls
It’s official: Indiana is one of the top 15 teams in the country.
At least, that’s what the polls tell us. Not only are the Hoosiers ranked No. 13 in the Amway Coaches Poll, they’ve claimed the same spot in the Associated Press Top 25. For IU, it is the program’s best ranking in the AP poll since appearing at No. 11 on Oct. 31, 1987.
Notably, Indiana has not beaten Michigan, this week’s opponent, since that 1987 season. The Wolverines dropped 10 spots to No. 23 after losing at home to Michigan State on Saturday. IU was also the higher ranked team (No. 15) in the 1987 matchup with Michigan (No. 20).
Indiana was ranked No. 17 last week.
Here’s how the rest of the AP Top 25 looks:
- Ohio State
- Notre Dame
- Texas A&M
- Oklahoma State
- Coastal Carolina
- Iowa State
- Boise State
