    One week after No. 3 Georgia dropped what everyone assumed to be a sure win against South Carolina, the AP Top 5 will be facing a shakeup once more. No. 6 Wisconsin, considered the only Big 10 threats to Ohio State’s dominance, lost to unranked Illinois on Saturday.

    The heralded Wisconsin defense had their worst day of the year, letting up several big plays for touchdowns and were unable to make the tackles required to get the ball back for the Badgers as Illinois drained the clock for a last-second field goal.

    Jonathon Taylor had another big statistical day with 132 yards on 23 carries, but couldn’t do enough to get the Wisconsin offense going against an average Illinois defense.

    The loss is likely a championship-killer for Wisconsin, which will have an uphill battle and need some help if they want to emerge from the Big 10 over still unbeaten Ohio State and Penn State.
