The Wisconsin Badgers (4-0) moved up to No. 8 in both the AP and Amway Coaches polls after their dominating 30-6 win over Michigan State on Saturday.

Five Big Ten teams are ranked in the AP poll. Ohio State is No. 2, followed by Michigan (No. 4), Wisconsin, Nebraska (No. 15) and Michigan State (No. 17).

There are now five Big Ten teams in the coaches poll as well. The Buckeyes (No. 2), Wolverines (No. 5), Badgers, Huskers (No. 15) and Spartans (now No. 16) all locked down spots in the Top 25. Iowa dropped out of the poll.

Wisconsin and Michigan will face off in Ann Arbor next Saturday (2:30 p.m. CST, ESPN family of networks) in a battle of Top 10 teams.
