Indiana football achieves best ever spot in coaches poll after win over Michigan

Up, up they go.

Indiana moved up three spots in the latest college football coaches poll released on Sunday after their win over No. 23 Michigan.

The Hoosiers moved up from No. 13 to No.10, marking the program’s highest ever spot in the coaches poll which started in 1992.

Indiana was also slotted at No. 10 in the AP media poll. Indiana had not been ranked No. 10 or higher in the AP poll since 1969.  They have not been ranked inside the top 10 since their historic 1967 Rose Bowl season.

Indiana is the second highest ranked Big Ten team in the coaches poll, trailing only No. 3 Ohio State.  Wisconsin (14) and Northwestern (23) are the only other league teams in the coaches poll.

IU also finds itself ahead of traditional national power programs like Georgia, Oklahoma, Auburn, Texas, and Tennessee.

Michigan dropped out after their loss to IU.  The Wolverines continue to receive votes, along with Purdue.

Indiana (3-0) will face Michigan State on Saturday in East Lansing.  The noon ET kickoff will be televised on ABC.
