ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- It appears Jim Harbaugh has made his impact on the Michigan football program a mere four weeks into the 2015 season.
It also helps pulling off a major 31-0 throttling against the 22nd-ranked team in the nation last week in BYU, too.
For the first time since November 2013, U-M appears on the AP Top 25 Poll as the 22nd-ranked team in the country according to writers across the nation. The Wolverines are one of five new teams to appear on the poll this week. Big Ten rivals Ohio State and Michigan State top the polls once again.
U-M is one of five teams from the Big Ten Conference currently ranked in top 25 with Northwestern (16) and Wisconsin (19) the others.
U-M also found itself on the outside looking in on the Amway Coaches Poll this week as well. The coaches ranked U-M as the 26th-ranked team in the nation and had 84 votes of consideration into the top 25.
