The Gophers have moved up to No. 18 in Monday’s AP Top-25 rankings following a two-win week.

With wins over Nebraska and Iowa, the Gophers have started to move back up the rankings after suffering through a four-game losing streak that dropped them to No. 23 last week.

With an overall record of 17-5 and a 5-4 conference record, Minnesota will travel to East Lansing this week for a match up with the No. 12 Spartans Wednesday evening.

No. 10 Ohio State moved into the top-10 with No. 3 Michigan and the new No. 1 Indiana.

With only a handful of regular season games remaining, Minnesota will host Illinois and Wisconsin following their game with Michigan State.
