NCAA Football: Indiana at Wisconsin Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Wisconsin Badgers (2-2 overall, 2-2 B1G) narrowly remained in the recently updated polls after consecutive losses to Northwestern and Indiana.

The Badgers came in at No. 25 in the Coaches Poll and in the AP Poll.

Let’s take a look at how the polls look across the Big Ten and the rest of the nation.

The B1G

  • Ohio State —> No. 4 Coaches Poll, No. 3 AP Poll
  • Indiana —> No. 9 Coaches Poll, No. 8 AP Poll
  • Northwestern —> No. 14 Coaches Poll, No. 15 AP Poll
  • Iowa —> No. 18 Coaches Poll, No. 19 AP Poll
  • Wisconsin —> No. 25 Coaches Poll, No. 25 AP Poll.

Nationwide musings

  • BYU and Wisconsin were the two teams that fell the farthest in the polls while still remaining after losses to Coastal Carolina and Indiana respectively.
  • The top four of the rankings were unchanged after all four teams won on Saturday.
  • Four SEC schools stand in the top-10 of both major rankings.
  • Cincinnati now stands as the highest ranked Group of Five team, and is set up to potentially earn a major bowl berth if they can remain unscathed.
