Even though Michigan State beat Wisconsin on Saturday night, there was no guarantee the new college football rankings would move the Spartans up more than a couple spots. Because only a couple teams in front of them lost, a top 10 ranking seemed a bit unlikely. However, the new rankings are out, and the Spartans have in fact achieved top 10 status.

Here's a look at the USA Today Poll, which now has MSU 10th in the nation:

1. LSU (41)

2. Alabama (18)

3. Stanford

4. Oklahoma State

5. Boise State

6. Clemson

7. Oregon

8. Arkansas

9. Oklahoma

10. Michigan State

11. Wisconsin

12. Kansas State

13. Nebraska

14. South Carolina

15. Virginia Tech

16. Texas A&M

17. Michigan

18. Houston

19. Penn State

20. Arizona State

21. Georgia

22. Texas Tech

23. Cincinnati

24. West Virginia

25. Southern Miss

Michigan, which had a bye, stayed at No. 17 in the USA Today Poll. With Purdue coming to town next week, Michigan will have a chance to inch back into the top 15 with a win.
