Michigan’s victory over Michigan State on Saturday, combined with Ohio State’s upset loss to Purdue, gave the Wolverines another bump in the two polls, released Sunday.

The Wolverines (7-1) rose to No. 5 in both the Associated Press and coaches' polls. They were ranked No. 6 in last week’s AP poll, and No. 7 in last week's coaches' poll.

The top four in both polls are Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and LSU.

Michigan does not play this week and returns to action Nov. 3 at home against Penn State.

Michigan State (4-3) received eight points in the Associated Press poll, and one 25th-place vote in the coaches' poll.
