The Week 12 edition of the AP Top 25 released Sunday afternoon was not that different than the Week 11 edition from a week ago. The biggest difference came with Wisconsin entering the top 10, climbing up from No. 13 after beating Michigan 49-11. The Badgers climbed over No. 11 Oregon, No. 12 Miami and No. 13 Georgia to get there, while the Hurricanes fell three spots despite picking up a win on the road against Virginia Tech.

The only other team in the top 10 to move this week was Indiana, which climbed a spot to No. 9 after a 24-0 win over Michigan State. The Hoosiers will take on No. 3 Ohio State this weekend in what will be a top-10 matchup that nobody could have seen coming a month ago.

Another Big Team team that found itself moving up was Northwestern. The Wildcats moved from No. 23 to No. 19 after a 27-20 win over Purdue. The only new team in this week's poll is No. 25 Tulsa, which replaced the SMU team it bet on Saturday night.
