Just moments ago, the latest USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll was released and as you can see below, Michigan moved up to No. 5, and Michigan State moved up to No. 11.

In addition, Georgia jumped Ohio State for the No. 2 spot behind Alabama after the Buckeyes struggled a bit as a heavy favorite against Notre Dame.

The only other Big Ten team included in the most recent poll is Wisconsin (No. 18). Penn State, Iowa, Minnesota, and Northwestern all received votes but not enough to crack the Top 25.
