Michigan Football may have had a bye week, but they were rewarded in the polls nonetheless.
- Michigan moved up from No. 7 to No. 6 in the USA Today Coaches Poll
- Michigan moves from No. 8 in the AP Top 25 Poll to No. 6.
The Wolverines are off to a hot start, standing at 6-0, but their toughest tests are yet to come. Michigan has a few matchups against teams that are currently ranked, all of whom are in the top ten of the AP (No. 5 Ohio State, No. 7 Penn State, No. 9 Michigan State).
Michigan’s next tilt comes next Saturday at Michigan Stadium against the Northwestern Wildcats. It’s been an up and down season for Pat Fitzgerald’s club, who are currently 3-3 on the year. Their past two games include a 56-7 loss to Nebraska and a 21-7 win over Rutgers. You can catch Michigan vs. Northwestern at Noon on Fox.
