After its impressive 41-10 victory over Northwestern on Saturday, the Michigan Wolverines held their spot at No. 5 in both major polls released Sunday. The top five were left unchanged with Oklahoma the unanimous choice for number one in both rankings, follwed by USC, LSU and Ohio State in that order.
Florida State moved into the top 10 of the Coaches Poll after it squeaked by North Carolina State in overtime to capture their 11th ACC title since joining the conference. FSU also won the ACC champs spot in a BCS Bowl. Former No. 10 Purdue dropped to No. 14
In the AP Poll Georgia and Texas swapped places at Nos. 6 and 7, respectively.
This weeks Big Ten showdown between Michigan and Ohio State has BCS Championship game implications. If the Buckeyes should previal they would likely jump USC for the No. 2 BCS slot, thereby giving them the nod to defend their title against, barring any shocking upset, Oklahoma. Should the Wolverines win it would send them to Pasadena for their first Rose Bowl since the National Championship 1997 season.
Michigan is expected to remain at No. 8 in the BCS standings. For the entire polls click on the links below.
