The Badgers are back in the Top 25.


A 37-21 victory over Michigan Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium vaulted Wisconsin to 24th in both the AP and USA Today/Coaches polls.

LSU took over the No. 1 spot, while Oregon, Oklahoma, Kansas and West Virginia round out the top five.

The Badgers close out their regular season with a game Saturday at Minnesota, where they will play for the Paul Bunyan Axe. The game will kick off at 2:30 p.m. on the Big Ten Network, which is bad news for cable viewers in the area and good news for local sports bars showing the game.

Despite the loss to the Badgers, the Wolverines are ranked 23rd heading into a matchup with seventh-ranked Ohio State next week. The winner of that game will win the Big Ten championship, though the Buckeyes lost their chance for a national championship when they dropped a home game Saturday against Illinois.
