More Badger rankings, yay!
Wisconsin is ranked 12th in the first preseason Associated Press poll of the 2021 season. Last week, the Badgers were listed 15th in the first coaches poll.
The rest of the Big Ten shakes up like this: Ohio State is fourth while also receiving one first place vote (the WIDE majority naturally went to Alabama), and then Indiana, Iowa, and Penn State fill out the 17th, 18th, and 19th spots respectively. Michigan and Northwestern both received votes but finished out of the Top 25.
