The Wisconsin Badgers are No. 4 in both the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches polls. The Badgers are one of five unbeaten teams remaining in the FBS, and they have won their games by an average of 22.1 points.
But tonight the members of the College Football Playoff selection committee put the undefeated Badgers at No. 9 in their initial poll.
The biggest issue for Wisconsin is that it has not played a nationally ranked opponent and doesn’t have one remaining on its schedule. But with a potential matchup in the Big Ten Championship game against either Ohio State or Penn State, the Badgers will be able to prove they deserve a playoff spot.
