Another week of the College Football Playoff rankings were released on Tuesday night with varying results for the state of Michigan’s two biggest schools.

Michigan State moved up to No. 16 in Tuesday night’s rankings after picking up a 17-7 home victory over Maryland this past week, while Michigan dropped out of the rankings after losing to No. 5 Wisconsin.
