Sunday’s Associated Press football poll ranks the Wisconsin Badgers (8-2, 5-2 Big Ten) 14th after their 37-21 win at Nebraska. Since Minnesota lost to Iowa, the Badgers still have a shot at the West title and the Big Ten Championship game. All-American running back Jonathan Taylor powered through the Cornhuskers for 204 yards and touchdowns Saturday – the third straight time he’s topped 200 yards against Nebraska. He also passed Herschel Walker for the most rushing yards by a college junior. The Badgers trailed 14-10 in the second period, but a Jack Coan-to-A-J Taylor scoring pass went for 55 yards and the lead. Wisconsin’s next action is at home against Purdue Saturday.
