Some argument could be made for the jump, as Michigan State came away with a victory this weekend in their battle for the Paul Bunyan Trophy with in-state rival Michigan.
The Wolverines were up two scores in the third period after a 19-yard touchdown pass from Cade McNamara to Mike Sainristil 19 Yd pass moved the score to 30-14 in favor of Michigan. But MSU running back Kenneth Walker III proved to be too much for the Michigan defense, exploding for 197 rushing yards and finding the end zone 5 times.
The Spartans leap frogged Alabama, Oklahoma and fellow B1G powerhouse Ohio State on his list.
So expect some bounce-back on his Tweet from a few fronts.
