This past Saturday was another wild one across the country, and with a handful of ranked teams losing their contests, the updated polls look a bit different.
While the Wisconsin Badgers are still idly standing by until October 24, that did not stop the respective ranking committees from keeping the Badgers in the polls.
According to the most recent rankings, Wisconsin 0-0 overall (0-0 Big Ten) now sits at No. 15 in the Coaches Poll and No. 16 in the AP Poll.
Let’s take a look at the shake ups in the newly released polls in the Big Ten, and nationally.
Even though no team in the conference played this weekend, multiple B1G teams still received votes.
- Ohio State —> No. 5 Coaches Poll, No. 6 AP Poll
- Penn State —> No. 8 Coaches Poll, No. 9 AP Poll
- Wisconsin —> No. 15 Coaches Poll, No. 16 AP Poll
- Michigan —> No. 19 Coaches Poll, No. 19 AP Poll
- Minnesota —> No. 25 Coaches Poll, No. 24 AP Poll
- Florida’s loss to Texas A&M shifted some things at the top of the polls. The Gators fell out of the top-four, opening up room for Georgia and Notre Dame to join Clemson and Alabama as the leading vote getters.
- Undefeated North Carolina and Oklahoma State continue to climb up the rankings, now standing right alongside Ohio State as the next wave of teams outside the top four.
- The state of Florida in general had a rough weekend, with UCF falling out of the Coaches Poll altogether, while Miami and Florida were two of the schools that fell the farthest in the rankings.
- Cincinnati is the highest ranked Group of Five team landing at No. 10 in the Coaches Poll and No. 8 according to the AP.
- Have to feel for Louisiana-Lafayette in the latest edition of the rankings, as they beat Iowa State by three scores, but stand one spot behind the Cyclones for some reason in each of the major polls.
