Badgers Move Into Top 5 of National Polls

On the heels of Wisconsin’s 48-17 thrashing of then-No. 8 Nebraska on Saturday night, the Badgers garnered a first-place vote and moved into the top 5 of the latest Coaches’ Poll. See both national polls here. The Badgers, No. 5, are one of five Big Ten teams ranked in the Coaches’ Poll, along with No. 11 Michigan, No. 15 Nebraska, No. 16 Illinois and No. 20 Michigan State. Four Big Ten teams, led by No. 4 Wisconsin, land in the AP Poll, which isn’t used in the BCS formula.

I did think we were rated too high before, 15th is a good ranking. We have to cut down on the turnovers and penalties to be effective. Without the three turnovers for TD’s I think the game would have been closer but I feel we still would have lost.
