Wisconsin Ohio State

Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor tries to cut up field past Ohio State linebacker Justin Hilliard during the first half of the Buckeyes' 38-7 win over the Badgers on Saturday in Columbus, Ohio. Taylor finished with 52 yards on 20 carries as UW lost for the second straight week. 

The University of Wisconsin football team couldn't hang with No. 3 Ohio State on Saturday and it showed in the rankings on Sunday. 

Following a 38-7 loss to the Buckeyes at Ohio Stadium, the Badgers (6-2, 3-2 Big Ten) fell five spots to No. 18 in the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll. 

UW has a week off before returning to Big Ten play against No. 19 Iowa on Nov. 9 at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison. The Hawkeyes moved up one spot following their 20-0 win over Northwestern on Saturday in Evanston, Ill.

In addition to UW, Iowa and Ohio State — which stayed at No. 3 after rolling over the Badgers — three other Big Ten teams made the Top 25: Penn St. (No. 5), Minnesota (13) and Michigan (14).

After the Badgers host the Hawkeyes, they hit the road to face Nebraska on Nov. 16 at Memorial Stadium, return home to host Purdue on Nov. 23 and close out the regular season Nov. 30 at Minnesota.
