Michigan State keeps elite spot in Coaches Poll
After dropping to No. 4 in the Coaches Poll last week, the Spartans stayed at their top-four spot. Michigan State came in behind Ohio State, Baylor and TCU.
The Spartans kept their spot in the top four by winning their seventh of their last eight games against in-state rival Michigan. It also marked the first time all year that MSU covered a point spread.
Michigan State got past its toughest test of the season before taking on Ohio State on Nov. 21. The 7-0 mark is the team’s best since it jumped out to an 8-0 start in 2010.
The Spartans were joined in the top 25 by fellow B1G teams Ohio State (1), Iowa (13) and aforementioned Michigan (17).
They’ll play host to Indiana next Saturday in East Lansing.
