Winning is the bottom line, but do style points matter? They do in the polls.
Wisconsin struggled to beat Georgia State on Saturday, hanging on to win by 6. But the Badgers did win and are now 3-0. It’ll get tougher from here, as Wisconsin begins Big Ten play at undefeated Michigan State. The Badgers are set to play the Spartans at noon (ET) on the Big Ten Network.
Previous rankings (Coaches/AP): No. 12/No. 9
New rankings (Coaches/AP): No. 10/No. 11
Last result: 23-17 win against Georgia State
What it means: The coaches and AP voters reacted differently to the Badgers, as Wisconsin jumped two spots in the Coaches and dropped two spots in the AP. But the Badgers are still undefeated and will get a great chance to impress voters when they face Michigan State, which is ranked No. 8 in both polls.
