College Football Rankings: AP Top 25 Keeps Michigan State 17th

The first non-preseason college football rankings for 2011 have been released. One week of the season is in the books, and the new polls are based on what went down in Week 1.

Because Michigan State played a sloppy game against Youngstown State, the thinking was the Spartans could drop in the new rankings. As it turns out, they stayed in the same spot in the this week's AP Top 25 as the preseason edition of the poll, coming in at No. 17 in the nation.

Here is the full AP Top 25:

1. Oklahoma (32)
2. LSU (17)
3. Alabama (9)
4. Boise State (2)
5. Florida State
6. Stanford
7. Texas A&M
8. Wisconsin
9. Oklahoma State
10. Nebraska
11. Virginia Tech
12. South Carolina
13. Oregon
14. Arkansas
15. Ohio State
16. Mississippi State
17. Michigan State
18. Florida
19. West Virginia
20. Baylor
21. Missouri
22. South Florida
23. Penn State
24. Texas
25. TCU

Michigan received 17 votes, which is good for 37th overall. Notre Dame is 36th overall with 22 votes.
