Michigan falls out of the AP Top 25, helping Michigan State move up one spot in the poll.
The Michigan State Spartans moved up from No. 21 to No. 20 in this week's poll despite struggling to beat Eastern Michigan. Michigan and UCLA (previously ranked No. 19) both fell out of the rankings, allowing Michigan State to move up.
Notre Dame, which has beaten Michigan and Michigan State in consecutive weeks without giving up a touchdown to either team, moved up one spot to No. 10.
Arizona, coached by former Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez, also fell out of the rankings this week.
