Northwestern jumps two spots to No. 17 in Week 5 Coaches Poll

Northwestern is up to No. 17 in the Week 5 USA Today Coaches Poll, which was released Sunday. The Wildcats, who were ranked 19th a week ago, moved up two spots after their 24-19 victory over Ball State.

The Wildcats' jump was mostly a product of big losses by Oregon and Arizona, both of whom were ahead of NU last week.

Northwestern remains ahead of Wisconsin, meaning NU is the third-highest ranked Big Ten team.

Here's the full poll:

1 Ohio State (61)
2 Michigan State (2)
4 Baylor
5 Ole Miss (1)
6 Georgia
7 Notre Dame
9 Florida State
11 Clemson
12 Utah
13 Alabama
14 Oklahoma
15 Texas A&M
16 USC
17 Northwestern
18 Wisconsin
19 Oklahoma State
20 Stanford
21 West Virginia
22 Mississippi State
23 Florida
24 Cal (tie)
25 Oregon (tie)

The AP Poll will be released at 1 p.m. CT
