The Wisconsin Badgers' dismantling of UNLV was noticed by some 80,000 spectators on Thursday night, millions of college football fans around the world, and perhaps most importantly, by the coaching and media delegates assigned with ranking the best 25 teams in America.

The Badgers are 8th in the AP poll (up from 11th last week) and 9th in the USA Today coaches poll (up from 10th). The Badgers were a mere two points from unseating Texas A&M from the 7th position.

Oklahoma occupies the top spot in both polls as the Badgers are the top team among the Big Ten conference. Oregon State, UW's next opponent, is not ranked. The opening line of the game shows the Badgers are favored by 21.5 points.

The AP top 10 looks like this: Oklahoma, LSU, Alabama, Boise State, Florida State, Stanford, Texas A&M, Wisconsin, Oklahoma State and Nebraska.

The USA Today coaches poll top ten is: Oklahoma, Alabama, LSU, Florida State, Boise State, Stanford, Oklahoma State, Wisconsin and Nebraska.
