The Wisconsin Badgers overmatched the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors 28-0 under the lights at Camp Randall Stadium Saturday evening.

After the win, voters bumped up the Badgers in both the Amway Coaches Poll and the AP Top 25 to Nos. 18 and 19, respectively. The Badgers moved up three spots in each poll from the week prior.

The Big Ten currently has five teams in the AP Top 25 and four in the coaches poll. Ohio State is No. 1 and Michigan State is now No. 2 in both. The AP poll had the Spartans as the second-best team in the nation last week, with the coaches poll holding them at No. 3. If both teams hold their ground, it should be a huge game on Nov. 21 in Columbus.

The Wildcats moved up to Nos. 16 and 17 in the AP and coaches poll, respectively, after their 24-19 win over Ball State. Welcome Michigan to the AP poll, as writers voted head coach Jim Harbaugh's Wolverines as No. 22.
