Wisconsin is the only major 5-0 team not in AP Top 25, Bielema says it's fine with him
Wisconsin is the only major 5-0 team in the country that's not ranked in the AP Top 25.
And coach Bret Bielema says it's fine with him. He says it's better for his team to keep gaining respect, instead of losing it by an inflated ranking.
National pundits have said for some time that the Big Ten is among the weakest of the major conferences.
Only three of its teams are in the Top 25 - Ohio State at No. 9, Iowa at No. 12, and Penn State at 14.
