MI scoots into Top 10 after victory over Florida

07 September, 2017, 01:31 | Author: Felix Jensen

In the latest AP Top 25 released Tuesday afternoon, Alabama, the preseason No. 1 that knocked off No. 3 Florida State Saturday night, maintained its stranglehold on the top spot. Florida State fell to No. 10 in the AP Poll and No. 9 in the Coaches Poll. Ohio State received one first-place vote and sits in second place for a second consecutive week. Taking over those spots in the Top Five are No. 4 Penn State (No. 6 in preseason poll) and No. 5 Oklahoma (No. 7).

No. 11 MI was one of those aforementioned slow starters on Saturday, putting themselves behind against a depleted No. 17 Florida team.

Washington and USC both started the season with wins but dropped in our rankings, a reaction to their early-game struggles with Rutgers and Western Michigan, respectively.
