Michigan State's "Hail Mary" win improves poll standing

Posted:

Michigan State has moved up six spots to Number nine in the AP Top 25 -- and the Spartans ranked even higher than that in terms of entertainment value this weekend when they beat Wisconsin 37-31 on a last-second heave.

Keith Nichol caught Kirk Cousins' pass off a carom and barely reached the end zone for a tie-breaking 44-yard touchdown Saturday night.

The Badgers fell eight spots to Number 12 on Sunday.

Michigan State is one victory from an unlikely October sweep. The Spartans have beat Ohio State, Michigan, and Wisconsin this month. They play at Nebraska next.
