COLUMBUS (AP)–Michigan (6-0) moved up to No. 3 in The Associated Press college football poll, right behind No. 2 Ohio State (6-0), to give the Big Ten rivals their best combined ranking since the 2006 season, when they played the only 1-vs.-2 game in the series.

Alabama (7-0) remained No. 1 on Sunday with a season-high 60 first-place votes. The Buckeyes stayed No. 2 after an overtime victory against Wisconsin, which fell two spots to 10th. The Wolverines moved up in an off week with Clemson (7-0) slipping to fourth. The Tigers had their own overtime escape at home against North Carolina State.

Michigan has its best ranking since it was No. 3 after losing to Ohio State in ’06.

No. 5 Washington, No. 6 Texas A&M and No. 7 Louisville held their spots.

The Buckeyes remained No. 2 in the Amway Coaches Poll. The Wolverines are ranked No. 4 in that poll, with Clemson coming in behind the Buckeyes.
