Michigan State fell to No. 24 from No. 16 in this week's Associated Press college football poll, which was released Sunday. Michigan is not ranked in the poll for the second consecutive week.

It is the opposite story in the Amway coaches' poll, where Michigan improved one spot to No. 24 while Michigan State, which had been ranked No. 18, fell out of the Top 25.

The Wolverines (6-2) defeated Rutgers 35-14 on Saturday while the Spartans (6-2) lost in three overtimes at Northwestern, 39-31.

There was a big shakeup at the top as Penn State, which lost to Ohio State, fell from second to seventh in both polls and TCU, which was stunned by Iowa State, dropped from fourth to 10th in the AP poll and from fourth to 12th in the coaches' poll.

The new top five in the AP poll are Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Notre Dame. The top four are the same in the coaches' poll, but Clemson is ranked fifth.
