You already knew the Michigan State Spartans had one of the best logos you’ll find in any sport.

As it turns out, the Spartans have the best logo in college football, at least based on this ranking by Athlon Sports’ Jim Weber. His list of the top 25 college football logos in 2016 has Michigan State coming in at the No. 1 spot, just ahead of names like Texas, Virginia, North Carolina, and Miami.

Michigan State’s in-state rival may have the best college football uniforms but it is Sparty who can lay claim to the game’s best logo. The second-place finisher in Reddit’s recent logo poll, this Spartan helmet silhouette ranks supreme here because it’s everything you want in a logo: Striking but understated, strong but subtle and just all-around awesome. And after years of endlessly toying with the shade of green, Michigan State finally hit the jackpot.

We’ll take it.
