Quite a fall leading into the first of three rivalry weeks.

After a stunning 24-21 loss to BYU at home, the Wisconsin Badgers fell in both the AP and Amway Coaches polls on Sunday.

Wisconsin (2-1) now is No. 16 and No. 18 in the Coaches and AP polls, respectively.

Ohio State (No. 4) and Penn State (No. 9) are in the top 10 of the Coaches poll, with the Badgers (No. 16), Michigan (No. 21) and Michigan State (No. 23) the other programs from the conference still within the Top 25.

For the AP poll, the same five teams occupy spots. The Buckeyes hold at No. 4 as well, but Penn State (No. 10), Wisconsin (No. 18), Michigan (No. 19) and Michigan State (No. 24) occupy different positions according to the writers. BYU actually ranks No. 25 in this week’s poll after their upset, with Iowa just missing out on being ranked.

Wisconsin looks to get back to its winning ways on the road against those Hawkeyes next Saturday night (7:30 p.m. CT, FOX).
