The Wisconsin Badgers are ranked in the top five of the preseason Associated Press Top 25. Wisconsin is number four in the rankings that were released Monday and is one of three Big Ten teams in the top 10, including Ohio State at five and Penn State at 10. Michigan State (11) and Michigan (14) are the only other Big Ten teams in the top 25, with Northwestern and Iowa receiving votes in the poll.
From good news to bad news for the Badgers, as second and third-degree sexual assault charges were brought against wide receiver Quintez Cephus Monday. Cephus faces those charges after two women say he sexually assaulted both of them at his apartment and that Cephus and his roommate, teammate Danny Davis, laughed and took photos of them. Cephus announced on Twitter Saturday night that he would be taking a leave of absence from the team in anticipation of the charges being filed by the Dane County District Attorney. U-W Athletic Director Barry Alvarez announced Monday that Cephus has been suspended from the team for violating the Student-Athlete Discipline Policy. Cephus is set to appear in court on Thursday.
