Michigan slides in polls again after setback at Wisconsin

New, comments

Eight of the AP top 25 ranked teams lost in week four, so there was movement in every conference.

NCAA Football: Michigan at Wisconsin Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

After week four, we know more about Michigan’s football program and unfortunately it’s not too positive. The test at Wisconsin spiraled out of control in a game where the Wolverines were overwhelmed, and now they have dropped in both polls accordingly.

The Wolverines slid to No. 20 in the Coaches Poll this week, while dropping to No. in the AP Poll.

The Big Ten saw movement in week four after Wisconsin handled Michigan in the conference marquee matchup.

No. 5 Ohio State

No. 8 Wisconsin

No. 12 Penn State

No. 14 Iowa

No. 20 Michigan

No. 25 Michigan State

Michigan had four more turnovers, was 0-for-10 in third downs, rushed for only 40 yards, and allowed Wisconsin to have 487 total yards. Nothing went right on either side of the ball and the team has a lot to improve quick. Let’s hope the Wolverines find part of their game against Rutgers before playing likely three out of four ranked teams in the next month.
