Clemson 115.55. Oklahoma 113.36. Auburn 111.87. LSU 110.58. Oregon 109.89. Georgia 108.3— Phil Steele (@philsteele042) September 22, 2019Wisconsin is ranked No. 8 in the AP poll and No. 9 in the Coaches. However, when you consider how Steele calculates his rankings, it makes sense the Badgers would be higher.They have been the most dominant team thus far this season, routing their opponents on both sides of the ball. This Saturday’s 35-14 win over Michigan sent a message to the rest of the Big Ten.You can argue the Wolverines are overrated, but it is also pretty clear at this point that the Badgers are for real.
