Michigan climbs in latest AP poll
Another nail-biter win, another rise in the top 25.
For the second time in three weeks, Michigan squeaked out a road win with a goal-line stand. As a result, the Wolverines moved up in the latest Associated Press poll.
With four top-10 teams falling, Michigan rose to No. 14. It was one of six B1G teams — more than any other conference — to earn a spot in the AP top 25.
Ohio State took the No. 2 spot, Iowa climbed to No. 6, Michigan State moved up to No. 9, idle Wisconsin was ranked at No. 21 and Northwestern was slotted at No. 20.
Michigan still has a chance to win the B1G East if it can pick up wins at Penn State next week and against Ohio State in the regular season finale.
