Michigan State dropped to #15 in the AP, #16 in the USA Today, and #17 in the BCS standings. What I can't figure out is how scUM is ranked ahead of the Spartans... again, this is a Michigan team that, yes, beat Notre Dame, but has no other quality wins on its resume. Sigh, it must be that mystique rearing its ugly head again.
Michigan State ain't out of it folks. What is amazing is the Wisky loss to Ohio State, the JoePa win, and the Iowa loss to Minny. If the Spartans can sweep their favorable schedule and Nebraska stumbles on the road at either JoePa or at scUM, MSU could head to the Big Ten title game against JoePa or Wisky. Right now, JoePa has a two game lead over the field in the Leaders division; the Spartans and Huskers are tied at 3-1 atop the Legends.
The Spartans are early 28-pt favorites over Minnesota this upcoming weekend.
