Wolverines drop to third in AP, USA Today polls
The Wolverines and Hoosiers had plenty at stake Saturday night: sole possession atop the Big Ten standings, momentum down the stretch in the toughest conference in America and, as it turns out, the unanimous top spot in the national polls.
After beating Michigan 81-73 in Bloomington Saturday, the Hoosiers took over the No. 1 ranking in both the AP Top 25 and USA Today Coaches' polls.
Michigan didn't fall far, coming in at No. 3 in both polls, behind a surging Florida team.
The entire Big Ten is still well-represented in the national polls.
Despite a rough stretch of losses, Minnesota still checks in at No. 18 in both polls.
The AP and coaches have a discrepancy when it comes to Michigan State. The Spartans, who have notched big wins over Ohio State and Wisconsin in recent weeks, are the highest-rated team with more than two losses in the USA Today Coaches' poll.
Michigan State (18-4) is at No. 8 there. In the AP poll, the Spartans are ranked 12th.
Ohio State ranks 10th in both polls.
The Wolverines and Buckeyes could each bolster their resume Tuesday night. Ohio State visits Ann Arbor in a crucial conference clash.
