After losing to Ohio State in Columbus on Saturday, Michigan dropped from No. 3 to No. 5 in the latest Associated Press Top 25.

Ohio State stayed at No. 2 behind top-ranked Alabama, and Michigan’s slide allowed Clemson and Washington to each move up a spot to No. 3 and No. 4 respectively. Michigan dropping two spots pushed Wisconsin from No. 5 to No. 6 despite its win over Minnesota while Oklahoma, Penn State and Colorado all stayed at Nos. 7, 8 and 9.

USC won its eighth in a row in a rout over Notre Dame and moved up to No. 10. Undefeated Western Michigan, now at No. 13, remains the top-ranked Group of Five team after beating Toledo.

And notably, six teams — No. 17 Stanford, No. 19 Virginia Tech, No. 20 Navy, No. 22 Iowa and Nos. 24 South Florida and Pittsburgh (tied with 168 points) — moved into the Top 25 after previously being unranked.
