A hard-fought, tough loss doesn’t drop Wisconsin far.

Ohio State vs. Wisconsin: Exclusive photos from Badgers', Buckeyes' OT Classic Patrick Barron

Despite a disappointing loss to the Ohio State Buckeyes on Saturday night, the Wisconsin Badgers still are ranked highly heading into their rivalry week against Iowa.

The Badgers (4-2, 1-2) now rank No. 10 in both the AP Top 25 and Amway Coaches Poll. That marks a two-spot drop in the former and no change in the second.

Four Big Ten teams are still sitting well in the Top 25. The Buckeyes still rank No. 2 behind Alabama in both polls after their come-from-behind win. Michigan is still a top-five program at No. 3 in the AP poll and No. 4 in the coaches.

Nebraska jumps two spots to No. 8 in the AP poll and remains No. 9 in the coaches poll after its 27-25 win against Indiana on Saturday.

Wisconsin heads to Iowa City to face the previously ranked Hawkeyes next Saturday at 11 a.m. CST.
