The Week 10 BCS rankings are out and Penn State comes in at No. 16, the third highest ranked Big Ten team this week. Nebraska holds the top spot in the Big Ten in the BCS coming in at No. 10 with the Michigan Wolverines ranking ahead of them at No. 15. Penn State currently controls their destiny in the Leaders division at 5-0 in Big Ten play. The Nittany Lions still have room to climb in the polls, however.
This week Penn State hosts the Nebraska Cornhuskers who are the No. 10 ranked team in the BCS. If Penn State can upset Nebraska, there is no doubt they will climb in the ranks. They still have Wisconsin on their schedule as well, who ranks in the BCS at No. 20. If Penn State holds steady in the Leaders division, they'll also play either No. 15 Michigan, Nebraska again, or No. 17 Michigan State in the Big Ten Championship game.
