Over the last four games, Wisconsin registered quality wins against AP #3 Michigan and RPI #31 Illinois and a win against Iowa but also dropped one against AP #10 Ohio State.
Wisconsin is lukewarm against top competition, with a 9-6 record against the RPI Top 100 that includes a 5-5 record against the RPI Top 50 but a 3-5 record against AP ranked teams. The Badgers have five quality wins including AP #3 Michigan, RPI #31 Illinois (2 wins), AP #18 Minnesota, and AP #1 Indiana. Their single bad loss came against RPI #102 Virginia.
