The University of Wisconsin moved up one spot to No. 4 in the Associated Press poll released on Sunday afternoon after its 24-10 win at Illinois on Saturday.

The Badgers are off to their first 8-0 start since 2004. This marks only the third time Wisconsin has won its first eight games in the modern era of college football, which dates back to 1946.

The Badgers jumped ahead of TCU and Penn State, which lost to Iowa State and Ohio State, respectively, but fell behind the Buckeyes. Ohio State moved up three places to number three. Every team in the top 10 except idle Alabama changed positions in the poll released today.

Penn State dropped to No. 7 behind Clemson, followed by Oklahoma, Miami and TCU, which dropped six spots after its 14-7 loss to the Cyclones.

Georgia moved up to No. 2 and took two first-place votes from top-ranked Alabama.
