It took four weeks, but Wisconsin is once again rated No. 14 in the country. The Badgers (3-0 Big Ten, 6-1 overall) were ranked No. 14 in the Associated Press Top 25 heading into the team's 23-5 loss to UNLV. Four victories later, the Badgers have regained that ranking and have also risen to No. 12 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, following a 17-10 victory over defending national champion Ohio State.

The Buckeyes (1-1, 5-1) fell to No. 8 in both polls. Five other Big Ten teams are rated: Iowa (No. 9 AP/No. 9 Coaches), Purdue (13/15), Michigan State (15/18), Michigan (17/17) and Minnesota (25/19).

Wisconsin next takes the field when it hosts the Boilermakers (2-0, 5-1), Saturday, Oct. 18, at 11 a.m. (CDT).
