Michigan State doesn’t pride itself on being a flashy program. Mark Dantonio certainly doesn’t consider that a priority.

But that doesn’t mean MSU lacks aesthetic appeal.

According to Athlon Sports, the Michigan State logo is the “best in college football.” MSU’s trademark white Spartan is certainly a clean, recognizable look that has been seen by plenty with the athletic department in the midst of a golden era.

Here’s how Athlon explained the decision to put Sparty at No. 1:

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.

That’s certainly high praise.

There were three other B1G schools that made the cut in the logo ranking. Penn State was ranked at No. 11, Iowa came in at No. 13 and MSU fans will be happy to know that Michigan rounded out the top 25.

Maybe MSU will put that ranking in another marketing promotion.
