How they voted: Badgers in 2014 AP football poll (Week 13)

BY Dave Heller • November 18, 2014

Well, you knew a win over then-No. 16 Nebraska would propel Wisconsin in the Associated Press Top 25 poll (and a loss likely would have jettisoned the Badgers out of the poll). So to no surprise, the Badgers gained nearly 500 votes in catapulting from No. 22 to No. 14.

For the first time all season every AP voter had Wisconsin on their ballot (Drew Sharp had never voted for the Badgers this season).

There were some giant leaps for Wisconsin this week - as many as 13 places. And, like last week, no one moved the Badgers down on their ballot.

With that, here's the ballots from the previous two weeks (note: I had last week as being Week 11, when it was Week 12; so this is Week 13.)
