Wisconsin remains the highest two loss team in the country currently and holds the highest CFP position in its program’s history. The Badgers are one of four Big Ten teams in the top 10 and are currently 2-2 against teams ranked in the top 25.
Alabama, Clemson, Michigan, and Washington make up the top four, with Ohio State and Louisville close behind. Only Washington will face a ranked opponent this week of teams currently in the top 10.
The committee has spoken and Washington is their choice for the No. 4 spot.

Wisconsin’s hopes for a playoff berth are still in full confidence at this point, with three games versus ranked opponents left on the regular season and a possible shot at a revenge game against either Michigan or Ohio State looming.
The Badgers will face Illinois at home this weekend.
