After its upset of No. 21 Stanford, Northwestern did not crack the Week 2 Coaches Poll, which was released Tuesday afternoon. The Wildcats did, however, receive votes — a fair amount of them in fact.

According to the coaches, NU is the 29th ranked team in the country. The Wildcats had the fourth most votes (35) among the teams that missed out on the top 25. Here is the complete poll:

coaches poll
The points system works as follows: All voters submit their top 25. A team is considered to have received one vote if one voter ranks them at No. 25, two votes if a voter ranks them at No. 24, and so on (25 votes if a voter ranks them at No. 1). So Northwestern's 35 votes mean many were impressed with the win over Stanford.

Northwestern moved ahead of Stanford, who received just one 25th-place vote.

The AP Poll was also released, and was even higher on Northwestern.
