Not much here. Early season polls are like beauty pageants, and Michigan is still hanging around outside the top group. This weekend's game will be big if Michigan wants to move up. Notre Dame is 14th and a win could put either team in or around the top-10.

There are three other Big Ten teams ranked. OSU dropped to third after a close-ish call against Buffalo. Wisconsin moved up a bit and Nebraska was dinged for giving up 600 yards to Wyoming. (Editor's note: I missed it the first time, but Northwestern is also ranked, so make that four other Big Ten teams. Thanks to Jon for emailing me the correction.)

Also, Michigan is 17th in the Coaches' poll.
