Big Ten in the polls: Badgers are back

Wisconsin has returned to the national rankings following its 51-10 thrashing of Hawaii on Saturday night.

The Badgers, who dropped out of the polls following their Nov. 21 loss at Northwestern, are ranked No. 24 in the AP poll and No. 22 in the coaches' poll. They should be back in the BCS standings as well, but we'll find out later today.

Ohio State is at No. 8 in both polls, while both Iowa and Penn State dropped one spot in the AP, to No. 10 and No. 11, respectively. Penn State remains at No. 9 in the coaches' poll, while Iowa drops a spot to No. 11 as Georgia Tech moves up from 12 to 10.

Northwestern is fourth in others receiving votes in the AP poll and fifth in the coaches' poll.
