College Football Rankings: USA Today Poll Moves Michigan Up To 11th

Following its 58-0 win over Minnesota, Michigan has received quite the bump in the polls. In the USA Today Poll, for example, Michigan has jumped eight spots from 19th to 11th. I figured Michigan would move into the top 15, but all the way up to 11th? I never would have imagined it would take Brady Hoke only five weeks to achieve the Wolverines' highest ranking since the 2007 preseason polls.

Michigan State also jumped up in the new USA Today Poll. After being ranked 25th this past week, Michigan State is now 20th thanks to its 10-7 win over Ohio State. The Spartans have a bye next week, so look for them to move up a few more spots if teams ahead of them lose.
