After a 59-10 win, voters kept the Wisconsin Badgers in the top 10 in one poll while dropping them out in another.

Wisconsin stayed at No. 9 in the AP Top 25 while falling out of the top 10 to No. 11 in the Amway Coaches Poll. Both polls were released on Tuesday.

There are now four Big Ten teams within the top 10 of the AP poll, with Ohio State (No. 2), Penn State (No. 4), and Michigan (No. 8) all locking up spots before Wisconsin. The Nittany Lions and Wolverines bumped up two and three spots respectively after their wins this weekend.

In the Amway Coaches Poll, Wisconsin dropped one spot. Ohio State (No. 2), Penn State (No. 4), and Michigan (No. 8) all are ahead of the Badgers in the top 10 after their season-opening wins. Florida State dropped six spots to No. 9 after their loss against Alabama on Saturday night, while Oklahoma State moved up one spot to No. 10.

All four of the above-mentioned Big Ten teams are the only ones ranked in both polls. Alabama is No. 1 in each.
