Michigan took another step up in this week’s Amway college football coaches’ poll, improving one spot to No. 14 following Saturday’s win over Maryland.

The Wolverines (7-2, 4-2 Big Ten) are also No. 14 in the Associated Press poll -- their same position as last week.

Both new polls were released Sunday.

The Wolverines are off this week and have three regular-season games remaining – Michigan State, at Indiana and Ohio State.

The top five remained unchanged in both polls:

Coaches: 1. Alabama, 2. LSU, 3. Clemson, 4. Ohio State, 5. Penn State.

AP: 1. LSU, 2. Alabama, 3. Ohio State, 4. Clemson, 5. Penn State.

Navy moved into the AP poll at No. 25, giving the American Athletic Conference four ranked teams, more than all but the Big Ten and SEC.

With nine ranked teams off this weekend, including four of the top five, there was little movement throughout the AP Top 25 presented by Regions Bank.

No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama on Saturday will play the first regular-season 1-2 game since the same two did it in 2011.

Navy joins fellow AAC members No. 17 Cincinnati, No. 19 Memphis and No. 23 SMU in the Top 25. Four ranked teams matches a high for the 7-year-old American, which was born from the collapse of the Big East.

Georgia jumped two spots to No. 6 after beating Florida in the weekend’s biggest game.
