Michigan, which was crushed by Ohio State 62-39 on Saturday, fell to No. 8 from No. 4 in this week’s Associated Press college football poll and in the Amway coaches’ poll on Sunday.

The top three remained unchanged in both polls: No. 1 Alabama, followed by Clemson and Notre Dame.

The newcomer to the top four in the poll is Georgia, which beat Georgia Tech 45-21 and moved up to No. 4 from No. 5 in both polls. Oklahoma also moved up one spot to No. 5 after edging West Virginia 59-56. The new No. 6 team is Ohio State, which had been No. 10 in both polls.

The Wolverines finish the regular season 10-2 overall and 8-1 in the Big Ten. The Wolverines will find out their bowl destination on Sunday, Dec. 2.

The new College Football Rankings will be out on Tuesday.
