Week 5 of the college football season is in the books, and Wisconsin let the nation know that it truly is an elite team. Nebraska, meanwhile, needs to rekindle its Blackshirt mentality — and turn Taylor Martinez into a passing threat.

Let’s take a look at how the National Football Post stacks up the Top 25 teams in the nation after the fifth week of the year.
