Michigan is Back on Top

Everyone seems to think 13 is an unlucky number, but I don’t think the Michigan Wolverines would agree. Michigan has been highly ranked in the AP Top 25 Poll since Preseason, but never broke the No. 2 spot until lucky Week 13. Michigan finally captured the No. 1 ranking which they haven’t done since 1992!

The top ranking is very exciting for the Wolverines, yet frightening at the same time. The No. 1 team doesn’t always hold their position very long, especially in recent weeks! Michigan hosts Northwestern on Wednesday which shouldn’t be a problem, but they do have a tough road game against No. 3 Indiana on Saturday that might knock them down. As much as I would like Michigan to walk away with the ‘W’ and stay on top of the AP Top 25 Poll, I know it is going to be difficult at Assembly Hall. Win or lose, the game will be very competitive and who isn’t a fan of that?

I wanted to celebrate Michigan’s No. 1 ranking, even if it is short lived, so I decided to get myself a new Michigan t-shirt. It’s awesome so I wanted to share it with you guys and for any of you who didn’t know where the title of my blog, Champions of the West, came from, now you do!
