MSU falls in AP, Coaches poll after blowout loss
Unsurprisingly, after a startling, deflating 48-3 loss to Ohio State, the Spartans have fallen.
In the Amway Coaches poll, MSU comes in at No. 24, a ranking that has the Spartans down eight spots. Wisconsin leads the Big Ten as the No. 4 team in the nation after a number of upsets last weekend.
Ohio State, the benefactors of the blowout win, comes in at No. 8 in the Coaches poll. The other two ranked Big Ten teams, No. 11 Penn State and No. 18 Michigan, are above MSU.
The Spartans come in at No. 22 in the AP poll. They were previously ranked No. 13 before their game against the Buckeyes.
No. 5 Wisconsin, No. 8 Ohio State, No. 13 Penn State and No. 19 Michigan are the other conference foes ranked.
MSU concludes its season with a pair of games against Big Ten East foes in Maryland and Rutgers. But first, the Terrapins are up. Kickoff for that game is set for 4 p.m. for Senior Day at Spartan Stadium.
