A slight drop in the AP, but UW still high in both polls.

Looks like the Wisconsin Badgers will be staying in the top 10 before next week’s showdown against Northwestern.

After its early-season bye, Wisconsin (3–0) dropped to No. 10 in the AP Top 25 but stayed in that spot in the Amway Coaches Poll.

The Badgers were listed as No. 9 and No. 10 last week in the AP and coaches polls, respectively, after their 40–6 win at BYU last weekend.

SB Nation’s Bill Connelly has Wisconsin at No. 5 in his latest S&P+ rankings (“with preseason carrying varying weight”), No. 7 “if there were no preseason projections,” and Jason Kirk placing the Badgers in the College Football Playoff.

ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg posted his power rankings with UW listed at No. 11 after its bye week.

Here are the Big Ten teams currently in the AP Top 25:

  • Penn State (No. 4, no change)
  • Michigan (No. 8, no change)
  • Wisconsin (No. 10, down one spot)
  • Ohio State (No. 11, down one spot)

The same four teams in the coaches poll:

  • Penn State (No. 4, no change)
  • Michigan (No. 7, up one spot)
  • Ohio State (No. 9, no change)
  • Wisconsin (No 10, no change)
