Top 25 poll update

Oklahoma’s 16-15 win against Oklahoma State on Sunday changed the top five of this week's USA Today/NWCA/AWN Division I coaches' poll.

The Sooners (5-0) moved up one spot to No. 4 after winning the first of two Bedlam duals this season. With the loss, Oklahoma State (1-1) drops from No. 3 to No. 5. Iowa (4-0) defeated Iowa State (5-1) 23-9 and moved up to No. 3.

Complete Poll
Penn State (3-0) and Minnesota (3-0) remained at No. 1 and No. 2 for the fourth consecutive week. The Nittany Lions were idle, while Minnesota beat then-No. 18 Oregon State in Corvallis.

Cornell, Illinois, Ohio State, Missouri and Nebraska remained in the same positions from last week, filling out the top 10.

Cornell (3-0) topped Illinois (6-1) in an exciting 18-15 dual at Madison Square Garden in New York City at the second annual Grapple at the Garden. Top-ranked Jesse Delgado of Illinois defeated second-ranked Nahshon Garrett of Cornell 6-2 at 125 pounds. Delgado is the returning NCAA Division I champion while Garrett was third last year.

Nebraska improved to 5-0 after wins against then-No. 18 Stanford, Cal State-Bakersfield and Utah Valley.

Pittsburgh was idle, but moved up two spots after Lehigh upset then-No. 11 Virginia. The Mountain Hawks (4-3) moved back into the top 25 after the win against Virginia. After one-point losses to Bucknell and Pittsbugh, Lehigh beat its second ranked team of the season at the Northeast Duals in Troy, N.Y.

Northern Iowa (3-0) was the biggest mover this week, jumping up four spots to No. 12. Coach Doug Schwab’s Panthers beat Wisconsin 29-9. The Badgers were the lone team to drop out of the top 25 this week.
