2013 college football rankings: Wisconsin finishes No. 21 in USA TODAY Coaches Poll, No. 22 in AP Top 25

Rob Foldy-USA TODAY Sports

Florida State, Auburn, Michigan State, South Carolina and Missouri round out the top fives.

Remember the days when we were supposedly approaching a top-14 standing in the BCS? Yeah, I do, too.

Wisconsin finished Nos. 21 and 22 in the USA TODAY Coaches and AP Top 25 polls, respectively, released Tuesday. These polls certainly don't change the outcome or success/failure of the Badgers' season, though I suppose they're landmarks of of relative significance now that the offseason's officially here.

Of note: Capital One Bowl opponent South Carolina finished fourth in both polls, one spot behind Michigan State. Other Big Ten teams in the top 25s include Ohio State (10th in the coaches; 12th in the AP) and Nebraska (25th in the coaches but unranked in the AP).

Arizona State also finished just one spot ahead of Wisconsin in both polls, SO HEY TAKE THAT, SUN DEVILS?
