In the AP poll, Michigan in #2 with 1472 points. UT is #3 with 1471....a difference of only 1 point. UT received 12 votes for first place while Michigan received only 9. The CBS poll has UT ranked as #1. Go Vols.
Hmmm, well Michigan is 12-0 but I dont understand this quote from the article.
"No. 2 Michigan received nine first-place votes, No. 3 Tennessee got 12, and No. 4 Virginia and No. 5 Kansas received four each"
Wow - a little surprised that Michigan jumped us. Still, it's by one measly point. Looks like we got more first place votes, so I'm guessing there were still a few voters who put Tennessee outside of the top 5, whereas I'm sure Michigan was in every voter's top 5.
