BCS Rankings Week 10 Projections: Wisconsin Takes Major Hit

A few weeks ago, it seemed like the Wisconsin Badgers had a chance to emerge as the class of the Big Ten conference and a legitimate contender for the national title. Those thoughts have never seemed more off-base than they do today, as the Badgers continue their free fall in the BCS rankings following a second consecutive defeat. Over at SB Nation our resident BCS guru, Samuel Chi, has the most recent ranking projections up, and the Badgers are nowhere to be found among the projected top 15 teams.

The Badgers lost to Ohio State on Saturday in brutal fashion, giving up a last minute touchdown pass on the road to lose 33-27. This comes on the heels of a rough loss against Michigan State the week before, and makes a possible BCS bowl appearance pretty unlikely at this point.

The biggest climber in the division appears to be the Nebraska Cornhuskers, who are coming off an impressive 24-3 victory over then-No. 11 Michigan State.

Here are the projected top 15 teams:

BCS Standings projections, Week 10: 1. LSU, 2. Alabama, 3. Oklahoma State, 4. Stanford, 5. Boise State, 6. Oklahoma, 7. Oregon, 8. Arkansas, 9. South Carolina, 10. Virginia Tech, 11. Nebraska, 12. Houston, 13. Michigan, 14. Kansas State, 15. Penn State.
