After defeating their third top-10 opponent this season, the Wisconsin Badgers moved up in the rankings this week.

Wisconsin (6-2, 3-2 Big Ten) bumped up to No. 8 in both the AP Top 25 and the Amway Coaches Poll.

In the AP poll, Michigan (8-0, 5-0) still remains at No. 2, while Ohio State (No. 6), Wisconsin and Nebraska (now No. 9) round out the top 10. Penn State (6-2, 4-1) continues its move upwards—now No. 20—after its 62-24 win at Purdue on Saturday.

The coaches poll shows four Big Ten teams in the top 10, with the Wolverines still at No. 2, followed by the Buckeyes (No. 6), Badgers and Huskers (No. 10). The Nittany Lions entered these rankings at No. 23 this week.

LSU, who Wisconsin defeated at Lambeau Field in the season opener, is No. 14 in the coaches and No. 15 in the AP rankings.
