Who’s No. 4 in college football? Westgate votes for Wisconsin

Wisconsin has no shot to make the College Football Playoff, but the Westgate SuperBook ranks the Badgers as the fourth-best team in college football.

Wisconsin (7-3) moved up to fourth in the Westgate’s power ratings after Oklahoma lost 27-14 to Baylor last week.

A three-loss team isn’t sniffing the playoff, but the Badgers would be favored by two points over Cincinnati, three over Oklahoma and six over Oregon on a neutral field by the Westgate.

Here are the Westgate’s power ratings of all 130 Football Bowl Subdivision teams, from No. 1 Georgia to No. 130 Massachusetts:
