Despite having lost to #1 Ohio State Saturday, the Michigan Wolverines remain at #2 in the AP poll.
The game of the year didn’t change the top of The Associated Press poll. Ohio State was No. 1 and Michigan was No. 2 in the Top 25 on Sunday. The Big Ten rivals have held the top two spots in the media poll since Oct. 15. After the Buckeyes beat the Wolverines 42-39 in Columbus on Saturday in their regular-season finale, the voters decided to keep them there.
The last 1 vs. 2 regular-season game that didn’t change the top of the poll was the 1966 classic between No. 1 Notre Dame and No. 2 Michigan State, which ended in a 10-10 tie.
The last time No. 2 lost to No. 1 in the regular season and didn’t drop was 1945, when Army beat No. 2 Navy 32-13.
Quite bizarre, really. It’s virtually unheard of to lose and not drop in the polls. Still, I’m not sure who I’d rank above Michigan right now.
