Wisconsin (2-0)  moved up four spots to No. 14 in the Associated Press poll and two spots to No. 15 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, each released Sunday.

Oklahoma remains No. 1 in both polls, receiving 41 first place votes from AP and 47 in the coaches poll. The Badgers are one of four Big Ten teams that graced the top 25 polls. Ohio State (3 AP, 3 coaches), Michigan (5/7) and Iowa (23/19) are the others.

The last time Wisconsin was ranked this high was Sept. 2000, when the team was rated No. 14 in the AP poll.

The Badgers' season continues Sept. 13 when they hosts UNLV (1-1) at 11 a.m. at Camp Randall Stadium.
