Poll Analysis: Michigan drops to No. 15 in AP, 16 in Coaches


Following a comeback win on the road over Northwestern, Michigan finds itself dropping one spot to No. 15 in the AP Poll and No. 16 in the Amway Coaches Poll.


The Wolverines dropped a spot in both polls following a mediocre performance on the road in Evanston.

At No. 15 in the AP, Michigan fans should breathe as it still controls its own destiny both in the Big Ten race and the College Football Playoff. Though, any aspirations that high must be answered with better performances than Saturday’s.

The quest for gold remains the same: win and you’re in; lose and you’re out.

Let’s take a look at this week’s polls and its impact on Michigan’s season.
