Wisconsin dropped to No. 12 in the AP poll and No 11 in the USA Today poll.
Nebraska (No. 13 AP/No. 13 USA Today) and Penn State (No. 21 AP/No. 19 USA Today) are the other ranked Big Ten teams.
The Big Ten, Big 12 and Southeastern Conference each have five teams in the top 25 of both polls.
LSU and Alabama are 1-2 in both polls and preparing for the biggest regular-season game in SEC history.
The Tigers and Crimson Tide held the first two spots in the AP poll with huge victories Saturday. With both heading into an off week, LSU and Alabama are virtually assured of meeting on Nov. 5 in Tuscaloosa as the top two teams in the country.
It'll be the second 1 vs. 2 matchup involving SEC teams, but the first time came in the conference championship game.
Oklahoma, which was No. 1 in the USA Today poll, lost 41-38 to Texas Tech, snapping a 39-game home winning streak.
