AP Top 25: Michigan, Utah each drop 9 spots after losses

Yahoo Sports

After an eventful weekend of football where eight ranked teams suffered losses, there was quite a bit of movement in the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll.

Most notably, Michigan, after a blowout loss at Wisconsin, dropped from No. 11 all the way down to No. 20. Wisconsin jumped from No. 13 to No. 8. Utah also had a big drop following a loss on the road to USC. No. 10 last week, the Utes are now No. 19 while USC is back in the rankings at No. 21.

Notre Dame put up a fight on the road in Athens, but dropped from No. 7 to No. 10 after losing to No. 3 Georgia. Elsewhere, Texas A&M fell from No. 17 to No. 23 after losing at home to Auburn, which jumped up a spot to No. 7.

Also of note: Cal, the lone undefeated team in the Pac-12, made a big leap from No. 23 to No. 15 after beating Ole Miss on the road.

Four other ranked teams lost to unranked opponents and plummeted in the rankings. UCF, after a loss at Pitt, is now No. 22, a seven-spot fall. Meanwhile, Washington State, Arizona State and TCU all fell from the rankings completely. Washington State blew a 32-point second-half lead in a loss to UCLA.

At No. 24, Kansas State made its 2019 debut in the rankings while Michigan State jumped back in at No. 25 following a dominant win over Northwestern.
