The Wisconsin Badgers moved up in both the AP and Coaches Top 25 polls on Sunday.

UW is now No. 9 in the AP poll, up one spot from entering the rankings at No. 10 last week.

Wisconsin now ranks No. 12 in the Coaches poll, up four spots from No. 16.

Five Big Ten teams hold spots in each poll. Wisconsin is behind Ohio State (No. 3) and Michigan (No. 4), but ahead of Michigan State (No. 12) and Iowa (No. 13) in the AP Top 25.

Wisconsin is the lowest ranked team for the conference in the Coaches poll, with the Buckeyes (No. 4), Wolverines (No. 5), Spartans (No. 8) and Hawkeyes (No. 11) votes ahead of them.

The Badgers overwhelmed the Zips in their 54-10 victory at Camp Randall Stadium on Saturday.
