Michigan finishes No. 3 in final AP poll of 2022 season

Michigan’s loss to TCU in the college football playoff semifinals is still stinging for the Wolverines, it also impacted the final standings.

The Wolverines finished the season No. 3 in the latest AP poll and the Horned Frogs passed the Wolverines to take second place.

Of course, the Georgia national champion retains the top spot after beating TCU 65-7 in Monday night’s national championship game.

According to UM’s Twitter account, this is the first time since 1947-48 that the program has placed in the top three in consecutive seasons.

Elsewhere in the Big Ten, Ohio State finishes one spot behind the No. 4 Wolverines, who missed a last-second field goal that would have seen the Buckeyes upset the Bulldogs in the semifinals.

Rose Bowl-winning Penn State finishes 7th to round out the rest of the conference.
