Despite not playing any game this weekend, Wisconsin football jumped up two spots to No. 15 in the latest AFCA Coaches Poll powered by USA Today.
Fortunately for the Badgers, UCLA and Virginia Tech were both upset this weekend and dropped out of the top 15, which made the way for Wisconsin to move up. Next week will be an exciting opportunity for Wisconsin against a top 10-opponent, as they will face former Badgers’ quarterback Jack Coan and the No. 10-ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Soldier Field.
Besides Ohio State that dropped one spot to No. 12, every Big Ten school moved up in this weeks’ poll. Michigan moved up six spots to No. 19 and Michigan State moved up eight spots to No. 21. Penn State moved up four spots to No. 8, while Iowa moved up a spot to No. 6.
A statement win for @FresnoStateFB against UCLA helped the Bulldogs vault up and into this week's college football coaches poll.
