Michigan is ranked No. 4 in the AP Top 25 poll.

The team started as No. 7 in the country, then jumped to No. 5 after a Week 1 win over Hawaii. The Wolverines have moved up another spot after a 51-14 dominance of Central Florida in Week 2.

The Big Ten Conference teams in the Top 25 include Ohio State (No. 3), Michigan (No. 4), Wisconsin (No. 9), Michigan State (No. 12) and Iowa (No. 13).

Michigan has not been ranked higher than No. 4 since the 2006 season, which saw the Wolverines at No. 2 in the country before losing to No. 1 Ohio State on November 18, 2006. In the offensive shootout, the Buckeyes stole a 42-39 win over Lloyd Carr’s Wolverines.

Also, Michigan moved up one spot to No. 5 in the Amway USA Today Coaches Poll.

The Wolverines will battle against Colorado, a 2-0 team from the Pac-12 South, at 3:30 PM ET in Week 3.
