Wolverines make big jump in both polls

Following Saturday's 41-30 win over Notre Dame in front of a national television audience, Michigan made a big jump in both Top 25 polls this week.

The Wolverines are on the verge of cracking the Top 10 in both polls, jumping from No. 17 to No. 11 in the AP Top 25 and from No. 17 to No. 12 in the USA Today Coaches' Poll.

The Fighting Irish fell to No. 21 in both polls.

Other Big Ten teams made moves, as well. Ohio State, which started the season as the No. 2 team in both polls (behind No. 1 Alabama), has steadily fallen down, despite a 40-20 win over Buffalo and a 42-7 win over San Diego State in its first two games.

The Buckeyes fell to No. 4 in the AP Poll (Behind No. 2 Oregon and No. 3 Clemson), and down to No. 3 in the USA Today Poll (behind No. 2 Oregon).

Last week, Northwestern was No. 20 in both polls, moving up to No. 16 in the AP and No. 17 in the USA Today.

Here's a breakdown of the entire poll. Big Ten teams are in bold:
