How they voted: Badgers in 2014 AP football poll (Week 2)

Well, I know you probably are trying to forget this past Saturday’s loss to LSU, but Wisconsin did make enough of an impression to remain in the latest Associated Press top 25 poll at No. 18. The Badgers lost 273 votes in the process.

Wisconsin is one of three 0-1 teams in the poll, although the Badgers are ranked higher than the other two (South Carolina and Clemson).

While more voters left Wisconsin off their ballot in Week 2 than in Week 1, there were a few who actually moved the Badgers up in their ranking from last week.

So I guess not all is lost for the Badgers just yet. And with Western Illinois up next then a bye week, I’d guess Wisconsin will remain ranked in the bottom of the poll for a bit yet.

Here’s the complete poll with lsat week’s rankings included for comparison’s sake:
