Michigan, following the 42-25 win at Illinois, maintained its spot as the No. 16 team in both the Associated Press college football poll and in the Amway coaches’ poll.

Both polls were released Sunday.

The Wolverines (5-1, 3-1 Big Ten) return to action this Saturday at Penn State (7:30 p.m., ABC/950). Michigan State (4-3, 2-2) is idle.

LSU moved up to No. 2 in the AP poll, giving the SEC the top two teams in the country for the 29th time and putting the Tigers behind No. 1 Alabama less than a month before the rivals meet in Tuscaloosa.

The Tigers jumped from No. 5, past No. 3 Clemson and No. 4 Ohio State, after beating Florida in a matchup of unbeaten teams Saturday night. The Crimson Tide host the Tigers on Nov. 9.

Wisconsin became the first new team to crack the top six after Georgia suffered the biggest upset of the season so far. The Bulldogs dropped from No. 3 to No. 10 after losing at home to South Carolina in double overtime.

LSU also moved up three spots in the coaches' poll, to No. 3 from No. 6, as Clemson held on to its No. 2 spot.
