Less than 24 hours after Michigan State exacted revenge on Oregon for its 2014 visit to Eugene, Ore. with a 31-28 victory at Spartan Stadium, it received an expected boost in the polls.

Both the Associated Press and the Amway Coaches' Poll have the Spartans fourth - as they jumped one spot in the AP Poll and two spots in the coaches' poll.

With 1,354 points in the AP Poll, Michigan State is 12 points behind third-ranked TCU and 114 points ahead of the team it defeated in the 2015 Cotton Bowl Classic - fifth-seeded Baylor.

The Amway Coaches' Poll has the Spartans sandwiched between TCU and Baylor, as well. The Spartans' 1,383 points in poll has them 47 points behind the Horned Frogs and 59 points ahead of the Bears.

Both polls have the exact same top five: Ohio State, Alabama, TCU, Michigan State and Baylor.

From a Big Ten perspective, Ohio State and Michigan State were joined in the AP Poll by Wisconsin - ranked 24th after its victory over Miami (OH) - and by Wisconsin (23) and Northwestern (24) in the coaches poll.
