A week after being ranked No. 2 in both the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches Polls, Michigan State took a step back dropping to No. 4 in the AP Poll and No. 3 in the USA Today Coaches Poll for Week Six of the College football season.
The Spartans are 5-0 after defeating Purdue 24-21 at home on Saturday to notch their first win in Big Ten Conference play, but did not impress the voters having received only one vote in the coaches poll and no votes from the AP voters.
The Spartans continue Big Ten play making their first trip out of the state of Michigan this Saturday when they take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights in a prime time match-up. Rutgers enters the game 2-2 overall with both wins coming at home.
