Michigan State Head Coach Mel Tucker and Michigan State Football's improbable march continues, as the team moves up No. 9 to in the AP Poll after a hard-fought road win over Indiana.

The Hoosiers looked to pull off the upset on homecoming after a disappointing 2-3 start to the season, but the Spartans ultimately overcame their offensive woes to take back the brass spittoon in a gritty 20-15 victory.

Iowa was the only top ten team that lost Saturday, after a stunning home loss to the Purdue Boilermakers, and tumbled down to No. 11. The Big Ten still has four teams in the top ten.

In the USA Today Coaches Poll, the Spartans were ranked seventh and were also ranked eighth in the Student Media Poll.

Here is where the teams stand through eight weeks of the college football season:

1. Georgia

2. Cincinnati

3. Oklahoma

4. Alabama

5. Ohio State
