College Football BCS Rankings: Michigan State Stays At No. 17, Michigan Falls

The latest BCS rankings are in and the Michigan State Spartans are in the same spot as last week even after they received a huge boost for their Rose Bowl aspirations this weekend. Legends Division contenders Nebraska and Michigan were both upset, virtually clearing a path for the Spartans to the first Big Ten championship game.
