Michigan Remains off Top 25 After Win

Michigan's up and down ride in the polls fell short of the elite, even after a victory over then No. 8 Penn State on Saturday. This is first time the Wolverines have been out for two-consecutive weeks in...well...a long time.

Saturday's last second heroics notwithstanding, the University of Michigan football team failed to return to college football elite for the second-straight week.

The Wolverines received 49 votes in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, and 58 votes in the AP Writers Poll.

Michigan defeated then No. 8 Penn State on Saturday on a last-second touchdown pass from Chad Henne to Mario Manningham. Penn State fell to No. 14 in the coaches poll, and No. 12 in the writers poll.

Michigan travels to Iowa on Saturday.
