AP Rankings - Week 2

Submitted by spartanfan123 on September 9th, 2012 at 12:36 PM

Michigan moves up to #17.


Other Notables:

MSU - #10

Ohio State - #12

Notre Dame - #20

Wisconsin (#13), Nebraska (#16), and Arkansas! (#8!) fall out of the top 25.


MSU and Michigan will probably the only B1G teams in the coaches poll when it comes out later today.

For all those who worried this team was lost after Alabama, I think we are seeing just how mediocre most of the conference and CFB really is after LSU/Bama/USC/Oregon.  I mean, if MSU is #10 in the country and they barely scrapped by a mediocre Boise team, that says quite a bit.

From Week 1 to Week 2, the Pac-12 added two teams to the top 25, and the Big Ten lost 2. One Independent crept into the poll, and the Big 12 lost a team in it. Considerable movement, I would say. The distirbution across conferences is:

SEC - 6 teams

Pac-12 - 5 teams

Big 12 - 5 teams

ACC - 3 teams

BIg Ten - 3 teams

Big East - 1 team

Independents - 2 teams

The Coaches' Poll has an almost identical distribution, with the sole difference being 4 Big Ten teams as opposed to three in the AP, and the absence of BYU in the Coaches' Poll.
