College Football Rankings, Week 15: Alabama At No. 2, Wisconsin Breaks Top 10 In AP Poll

The AP Poll was released recently, and the Wisconsin Badgers lead the way for the Big Ten at No. 9 in the nation.

The Associated Press recently released its college football rankings for week 15 of the 2011 season, and Oklahoma State was unable to overtake Alabama for the No. 2 spot in the poll. Alabama beat out Oklahoma State by just 18 points. The Big Ten didn't have a contender for the national championship this year, but the Wisconsin Badgers got back into the top 10 by landing at No. 9 in this week's rankings.

Wisconsin leads a Big Ten conference that doesn't include any teams among the top-8 in the country, but they heavily populate the remainder of the top-25. Beyond the Badgers at No. 9, Michigan State comes in at No. 12, Michigan lands at No. 13, Nebraska sits at No. 21 and Penn State ends at No. 23.
