Michigan, Michigan State skyrocket in latest AFCA Top 25 Coaches Poll

After very impressive 3-0 starts to the season, Michigan and Michigan State were the talk of the town heading into this weekend’s games against Rutgers and Nebraska.

Despite that, both Michigan (No. 14) and Michigan State (No. 16) have made big moves in the latest AFCA Top 25 Coaches Poll.

Here is the full poll for your viewing pleasure.
