Michigan falls in Associated Press poll
Inevitably, it wasn’t going to be pretty.
Following Michigan’s 42-13 loss to Ohio State on Saturday, the Wolverines took their steepest fall of the season in the top 25. They fell seven spots and came in behind four B1G teams at No. 19 in the latest Associated Press poll.
Iowa (4), Michigan State (5), Ohio State (6) and Northwestern (13) all came in ahead of the Wolverines while Wisconsin got back into the top-25 following a win against Minnesota.
Northwestern was the Wolverines’ only victory against a team in the current top 25.
Michigan did finish the regular season with nine wins and in the top 20, which is still a massive improvement over the 5-win mark it achieved in Brady Hoke’s final year in Ann Arbor.
The Wolverines will likely be heading to either the Citrus Bowl or the Outback Bowl to square off with an SEC foe for the first time in the Jim Harbaugh era.
Bowl games will not be announced until after the conference championships wrap up next week.
