AP Poll: Michigan falls out of top 4, Western Michigan up to No. 13

After a bitter and disappointing loss to Ohio State in Columbus, Michigan slipped two spots to number five in the latest AP rankings. It was a controversial loss that had head coach Jim Harbaugh furious over the officiating.

While the AP is one of the most respected polls, the College Football Playoff ranking is the only poll Michigan fans should worry about. Stay tuned for that Tuesday.

Elsewhere in the state, the Western Michigan Broncos moved up one spot to number 13 after stampeding the Toledo Rockets. Losses by Houston and Boise State dropped them out of the rankings leaving Western the front runner to represent the group of five in the New Year’s Six bowl games. ROW THE BOAT!

Iowa re-enters the poll for the first time since week three after a home loss to FCS North Dakota State knocked them out. They come in at 22 in the latest rankings.

Here is the AP top 25 in its entirety.
