MOVING UP BECAUSE OTHERS HAVE DONE WORSE. Wisconsin's football Badgers have moved up in the polls as teams that actually played lost games. There is a serious challenge coming in the form of Minnesota, reports of difficulties notwithstanding. Northern Illinois also moved up, despite letting Ball State come back from trailing 21-3. The defense had the last word, making the fourth-down stop in the first "inning" of overtime. There is a reason teams play games rather than simply rely on power ratings.
