To go to the Rose Bowl, MSU needs OSU to lose to either Iowa or Michigan. That's all it takes -- one OSU loss, which would put MSU into a tie with Wisconsin. Because the Spartans beat the Badgers earlier this year, MSU has the tiebreaker and would control its own destiny. To have any chance of an at-large bid, MSU needs Wisconsin to lose to either Michigan or Northwestern. If both OSU and Wisconsin win out, the Big Ten's two BCS berths would be taken right there, meaning an 11-1 MSU team would end up in the Capital One Bowl, which is yet another example of how crappy the BCS is.
