After the win over Ohio State, the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll was kind to Michigan, but not quite as kind as anticipated, with the Wolverines coming in ranked No. 3, ahead of Cincinnati, but behind Alabama. But what would the AP voters think of the maize and blue after they took down the No. 2 Buckeyes?

Perhaps a precursor to the College Football Playoff rankings that will be revealed on Sunday, Michigan came in at No. 2 in the AP Top 25, while Ohio State fell to No. 7. With Wisconsin dropping out of the poll, the Buckeyes are now the Wolverines’ only ranked win of the season, but it certainly is a big one.
