College Football Rankings: Michigan State Drops To 11th In New Human Polls

Although Michigan State was ranked 11th in last week's BCS standings, it was 10th in the AP and USA Today Polls. This week, however, the Spartans have dropped to 11th in both of those human polls, slipping a spot after being on a bye. The AP Poll jumped Alabama to 10th over MSU despite the fact that the Crimson Tide have two losses, to South Carolina and LSU. In the USA Today Poll, Oklahoma State moved up a spot over the Spartans, which isn't too surprising considering the Cowboys are 9-1. If anything, Oklahoma State being ranked above MSU makes a heck of a lot more sense than Alabama being above the Spartans.

Anyway, here is the full AP Poll:

  1. Oregon
  2. Auburn
  3. Boise State
  4. TCU
  5. LSU
  6. Wisconsin
  7. Stanford
  8. Ohio State
  9. Nebraska
  10. Alabama
  11. Michigan State

  19. Nevada
  20. USC
  21. Iowa
  22. Mississippi State
