Michigan Moves Up In AP Top 25, Spartans Stay Put

By Will Burchfield

The College Football AP Top 25 poll was released Tuesday afternoon and Michigan jumped up to No. 5 in the country.

This came on the heels of the Wolverines’ 60-point bashing of Hawaii on Saturday.

Michigan State, who topped Furman 28-13 on Friday, remained at No. 12.

The two biggest leaps were made by No. 6 and No. 9 Georgia, who both jumped up nine spots. Houston knocked off previously-No. 3 Oklahoma while Georgia beat then-No.22 North Carolina.

LSU suffered the biggest drop, falling 16 spots to No. 21 after losing at home to unranked Wisconsin.

Newcomers to the Top 25 included Miami, Wisconsin and Texas, who notched a thrilling 50-47 overtime victory over Notre Dame on Sunday night.
