ANN ARBOR, MI (WTVB) - The big scare Michigan received at home Saturday before escaping with a last second 28-24 win over Akron has dropped the Wolverines in the polls. Michigan slips from 11th to 15th place in the AP poll and from 12th to 14th in the USA Today Coaches poll. The 3-and-0 Wolverines play this weekend at Connecticut.
Meanwhile, Michigan State has appeared in the Top 25, at least in the Coaches poll, showing up this week in 24th place after the Spartans 55-to-17 romp over Youngstown State. M-S-U is 26th in the A-P rankings. On Saturday, it’s Michigan State at Notre Dame.
