UNDATED (WSAU-TSN) A big win moved the Wisconsin Badgers up to 4th in the new A.P. college football poll.
LSU remained the top team in the latest Associated Press college football poll and is now followed by fellow SEC power Alabama, which moved ahead of Oklahoma after its thorough victory at Florida on Saturday.
Oklahoma was No. 1 two weeks ago and still hasn't lost this season, but LSU's convincing win at West Virginia last Saturday moved the Tigers ahead of the Sooners and the Crimson Tide's emphatic victory at the Swamp this past Saturday swayed enough voters to again drop Bob Stoops' team another spot.
LSU, following a 35-7 thumping of Kentucky on Saturday, received 40 first- place votes -- actually two fewer than last week -- and 1,473 total points from a nationwide media panel.
Alabama began the season No. 2 and dipped to three as LSU began dominating its difficult early-season schedule. The Crimson Tide came away with a 38-10 win in Gainesville on Saturday and picked up 12 first-place votes, seven more than last week.
Oklahoma, following 10-point wins over Florida State and Missouri, easily dispatched an overmatched Ball State squad on Saturday, 62-6. The Sooners garnered seven No. 1 tallies, down five from last week, but they'll get a chance to change some voters' minds this coming Saturday in the annual Red River Rivalry game against Texas, which is ranked 11th this week.
Wisconsin moved up three spots to fourth after a 48-17 pounding of Nebraska and is followed by Boise State, which dropped one spot and still retained its one first-place vote after a 30-10 win over Nevada.
The Badgers play Indiana next Saturday in Madison. Kickoff is at 11am. Game coverage begins at 9am on AM-550 FM-99.9 WSAU.
