The new top-25 polls show Michigan State has another big test when Wisconsin comes to town next week.

Following Michigan State’s convincing win at Notre Dame, the Spartans have made a big jump up this week’s top-25 poll.

The AP Poll saw Michigan State rise all the way up to No. 8, a four-spot jump from No. 12 last week. Wisconsin also rose to No. 11 in the new AP Poll, and the Badgers come to Spartan Stadium next week.

The Coaches Poll saw Michigan State remain at the No. 8 spot. It’s crazy to think the Spartans can go into South Bend and win like they did without moving up, but that’s life in the top 10 for ya.

It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise with most of the top 10 winning this week, including Alabama (1), Ohio State (2), Clemson (3), Michigan (5), Stanford (6), and Houston (7).

The good news is Michigan State faces two of them in East Lansing when both Ohio State and Michigan come to town later this season. Four total Big Ten teams are in the top 10 of the Coaches Poll, followed by No. 20 Nebraska.
