The American Football Playoff rankings have changed for the third straight week, but undefeated Michigan remains at No. 3.

Georgia is the new No. 1 after a 52-17 thrashing of Ole Miss on Saturday, while Ohio State fell to No. 2 after being ranked No. 1 the previous two weeks. The sevens football team topped Michigan with a 38-3 win. Florida State remained No. 4 in the latest rankings released Tuesday night.

Representatives of the CFP selection committee questioned Michigan’s strength of schedule after the first two rankings were released, but the Wolverines are now facing their toughest test of the season so far, improving their record to 10-0 with a 24-15 win over Penn State. The Wolverines rushed for 227 yards and three touchdowns on an average of 60.3 carries against what was at the time one of the nation’s top run defenses.

The American Football Playoff rankings have changed for the third straight week, but undefeated Michigan remains at No. 3.

On Tuesday night, CFP Board of Trustees Chairman Boo Corrigan was asked about the rankings of Ohio State and Michigan State during a conference call with reporters.

“Look at Ohio State,” Corrigan said, “they’re sharing a win with Michigan right now against Penn State, Ohio State beat Notre Dame by a score of 5-0, a team that has a great record and a top-five defense, but they’re ranked at the bottom of the rankings in terms of offense, at 38.” Michigan continues to move forward and continues to dominate in games. As we continue to look at everything in our weekly games, we end up ranking Ohio State at No. 2 and Michigan at No. 3 after Week 11.

Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh was suspended by the Big Ten on Friday and will play without his head coach. Big Ten President Tony Petitti said Harbaugh violated the league’s sportsmanship policy, which is linked to an ongoing NCAA investigation into alleged trademark theft.

Attorneys for Harbaugh and the university filed a temporary restraining order against the Big Ten and Petitti in state court late Friday in an attempt to overturn the Big Ten’s ban. No hearing was held Saturday, and Harbaugh was not coaching. A preliminary injunction hearing is scheduled for Friday at the Washtenaw County Courthouse.

Before ESPN released its CFP rankings, program host Rece Davis said he thought Michigan was one of the two best teams in the country.

“I think any time you don’t have a leader present,” Davis said, “it has a negative impact.” But I still think Michigan is one of the two best teams in the country, one of the two best teams I’ve seen this year. I think they can still win games (even without Harbaugh, against Ohio State). They are playing very well (against Penn State) and Sherron Moore is a rising star in the coaching world guiding them. Not the best choice, but I still think they can win that game.”
