BCS Rankings: Michigan State Falls To 14th

The newest BCS rankings were just made public. Michigan State has dropped down to 14th, slipping nine spots after losing to Iowa on Saturday. The Spartans are ranked 15th in the new USA Today Coaches Poll and 16th in the new Harris Poll, so the computers must still like them a bit. Perhaps that will change as they play three games against weak teams to finish the season, though.

Here is a full look at the new BCS rankings:

  1. Oregon
  2. Auburn
  3. TCU
  4. Boise State
  5. Utah
  6. Alabama
  7. Nebraska
  8. Oklahoma
  9. Wisconsin
  10. LSU
  11. Ohio State
  12. Missouri
  13. Stanford
  14. Michigan State
  15. Arizona
  16. Iowa
  17. Oklahoma State
  18. Arkansas
  19. South Carolina
  20. Mississippi State
  21. Baylor
  22. Virginia Tech
  23. Nevada
  24. Florida State
  25. North Carolina State

As mentioned in the original post of this StoryStream, the BCS rankings aren't relevant to the Spartans for national title purposes, but to position themselves for a potential at-large bid to a BCS game if the Rose Bowl doesn't happen, they will want to climb up the rankings as much as they can in the final weeks of the season.
