ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- In one day, Michigan vanquished a rival it had not beaten in four seasons, forced the second rushing of the field after a big win in as many seasons, and, perhaps most importantly for the Wolverines, gave themselves control of the Legends division race.

Not a bad day of work, especially when you consider Michigan did it almost completely with defense and special teams.

Those two units comprise the majority of this week’s Michigan 10 -- the Wolverines football power rankings.
