The University of Wisconsin football team didn’t allow an upset-minded Kent State to threaten its unbeaten start to the year Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium.

The Badgers’ 48-0 romp over the Golden Flashes didn’t change their ranking in the Associated Press’ Top 25 poll, as they stayed at No. 8 for the third straight week.

UW (5-0, 2-0 Big Ten Conference) hosts Michigan State for its Homecoming game at 2:30 p.m. Saturday. It will be televised on Big Ten Network.

The Spartans (4-2, 2-1) — who are receiving votes in the poll coming off a 34-10 loss at Ohio St. — haven’t played at Camp Randall since 2012, when they won a 16-13 decision in overtime. The teams haven’t seen each other since 2016 when the Badgers cruised to a 30-6 win in East Lansing.

Michigan State leads the all-time series 30-20.

UW is one of five ranked Big Ten teams, including No. 3 Ohio State, No. 10 Penn State, No. 16 Michigan, No. 17 Iowa and No. 26 Minnesota. Ohio State is tied for the third spot with Georgia.
