Michigan cracks Playoff Ranking for first time this year
Written by Matt Pargoff   

 

Despite being ranked in the top-20 for the Associated Press and USA Today/Amway Polls, Michigan was left off each of the first two College Football Playoff Rankings released this season. That changed on Tuesday evening though, when the Wolverines made their first appearance on the list, coming in at No. 24.

While making it into playoff contention would be extremely unlikely at this late point in the season, Michigan does have a chance to make significant waves in the final two weeks, playing against No. 5 Wisconsin and No. 9 Ohio State.

The Big Ten has two other representatives on the list as well – the two teams that beat Michigan – with Penn State at No. 10 and Michigan State at No. 17.
