Reaching as high as No. 12 just a few weeks ago, Michigan State has officially fallen out of the latest AP Poll after a 0-2 week. 

MSU also fell out of the Student Media Poll

The Spartans started the week with a blowout loss to Notre Dame in South Bend Wednesday night, then ended it with a 70-63 defeat in the Big Ten opener against Northwestern on Sunday.

MSU continues Big Ten play with a Wednesday night matchup against Penn State in Happy Valley on Wednesday. 

Despite Michigan State’s absence, the Big Ten is still well represented in the poll. Purdue leads the pack at No. 4, with Maryland, Indiana, Illinois and Ohio State also finding spots in the top 25.
