2012 NCAA football rankings: Michigan unable to crack latest BlogPoll Top 25

Despite a 22-point win over Minnesota in Week 10, the Michigan Wolverines fell short of the BlogPoll Top 25 for the second consecutive week.

Bruce Thorson-US PRESSWIRE

Currently tied for first place with the Nebraska Cornhuskers at 4-1 in the Big Ten Legends Division, the Michigan Wolverines once again fell short in the voting in this week's BlogPoll Top 25.

The Wolverines dropped from the rankings last week following a crushing 23-9 loss to the Cornhuskers at Memorial Stadium, but managed to bounce back with a strong showing against Minnesota last weekend. The 35-13 victory with backup quarterback Devin Gardner at the helm clearly did not sway many voters however, as the Wolverines remain one of a handful of Big Ten schools currently trying to break back into the rankings.

Mark Dantonio's Michigan State Spartans picked up a few votes despite a disheartening 28-24 loss to Nebraska on Saturday, but are still a meager 5-5 on the year and 2-4 in conference play. With virtually no shot at landing a bid to the Big Ten title game and somewhat low profile games against Northwestern and Minnesota remaining, Dantonio's squad may be hard-pressed to creep back into the top 25 so late in the year.
