After remaining stagnant last week in both human polls, the Wisconsin Badgers moved up one spot to No. 16 in the Amway Coaches poll and two spots to No. 17 in the AP poll. Here are the polls, as well as the Sagarin rankings, for your viewing in their entirety:

Wisconsin remains the second-highest Big Ten program in each of the polls behind Michigan State. The Spartans drop back down to No. 10 in both human polls, while dropping to No. 11 in the Sagarin rankings. Behind the Badgers in the human polls are Nebraska (No. 17 Coaches/No. 19 AP) and Ohio State (No. 18/No. 20), who are slowly creeping up.

Just to note, the coaches poll seems to have corrected itself, as LSU is now ahead of the Badgers at No. 15 -- one spot ahead of Wisconsin. Not that it matters really, since the polls will not factor into the College Football Playoff.
