Badgers slide in polls

UW suffers steep drop after consecutive blowout losses

The University of Wisconsin football team fell to No. 20 in the Associated Press poll and No. 18 in the coaches' poll after losing 30-7 at Iowa Saturday in both teams' regular season finale. Each poll was released Sunday.

Wisconsin (9-2) was No. 4 in each poll two weeks ago but fell to No. 9 in each last week after losing 49-14 at Michigan State. Saturday's loss dropped them nine spots on the coaches' list and 11 in the AP poll.

At No. 12, Iowa (9-2) is the top-ranked Big Ten team in the AP poll. Michigan (9-2), is ranked No. 13 in each poll and leads conference teams in the coaches' rankings. The Hawkeyes are No. 14 according to the coaches.

No other Big Ten teams are ranked.

USC (10-0) remains No. 1 in each poll while Oklahoma (11-0) holds onto No. 2, just a few poll points ahead of Auburn (11-0) in each poll.
