The Michigan State Spartans are still on the outside looking in at the top-25 poll results this week, but keep winning, especially at No. 24 Miami (FL.) this Saturday, and that could change ahead of a visit from Nebraska.


AP Poll

Five Big Ten teams are in the AP top-25 this week, with Michigan creeping into the rankings after a home win over Washington. The Spartans are the fourth team listed in teams receiving votes and have a chance to possibly climb into the polls next week if the team can get a big road win at No. 25 Miami on Saturday.

The Buckeyes took quite the tumble in the coaches poll as well after the home loss to Oregon. Miami also dropped out after struggling at home against Appalachian State over the weekend. Michigan State will hope to take advantage of those struggles Saturday at Hard Rock Stadium and maybe jump into the polls as a result ahead of Nebraska coming to town.
