Michigan is the first of the unranked teams and can move back into the top 25 with a win at Penn State next week. The Wolverines actually moved up to 25th in the USA Today Poll despite being on a bye this past week. In the AP Poll, Michigan is still unranked.

The BCS standings will be released tonight shortly after 8:15 p.m. SB Nation Detroit will have an update and analysis relating to what the new standings mean for Michigan State.
