Landing just outside the top 25 is Michigan, led by the dynamic Denard Robinson.
After leading his team to a come-from-behind victory against a talented Notre Dame squad (the Irish are talented, the record just doesn't reflect it), Robinson and Michigan were left on the outside looking in for no real reason.
With so few in the top 25 losing, there were no real spots for any teams to jump back in the top 25. With that, though, TCU beat on a poor Air Force team and was able to remain in the top 25 despite playing inferior opponents and getting lit up by Baylor the week before.
Auburn also moved back in, and Mississippi State remained in the top 25 despite losing to an Auburn team that was unranked.
The Wolverines were easily better than TCU, Auburn or Mississippi State.
