Purdue is the Big Ten's highest-ranked team in the AP poll.
Wisconsin tumbled five spots with losses in two of its last three games, and Purdue jumped up a couple spots thanks to wins over Rutgers and Michigan State when the latest batch of top-25 rankings was released Monday morning.
The Boilermakers climbed from No. 16 to No. 14. Matt Painter's team is on a five-game winning streak with wins in eight of its last nine games. Purdue will spend plenty of time away from West Lafayette over its final four regular-season games with road trips to Penn State, Michigan and Northwestern and a home bout with Indiana.
The Badgers rebounded from back-to-back losses to Northwestern and Michigan with a win over a ranked Maryland team on Sunday. That win kept Wisconsin from really plummeting in the AP rankings, but it still dropped from No. 11 to No. 16 on Monday. The Badgers wrap up their regular-season schedule with games against Ohio State, Michigan State, Iowa and Minnesota.
Maryland stayed in the top 25 but dropped from No. 23 to No. 24 after an interesting week that featured a big win at Northwestern but a loss at Wisconsin. The Terps take on Minnesota, Iowa, Rutgers and Michigan State to wrap their regular-season schedule.
Northwestern received a substantial amount of votes in this week's poll, checking in as the de facto No. 27 team in the country. Minnesota and Michigan also received votes.
