Wisconsin (9-2) is another program that might benefit from the new system. Anyone can see that the Badgers, winners of six straight, are much better than their No. 15 ranking in the latest BCS standings. They boast the nation's sixth-ranked defense and eighth-ranked rushing attack. But Wisconsin is a two-loss team, and pollster policy dictates that the Badgers must stay in two-loss purgatory.
