EAST LANSING, Mich. — Michigan State improved to 3-1 on Saturday with a 17-10 win over Iowa in its Big Ten opener, but as expected, it did not prove enough to propel the Spartans into the national rankings.
Coach Mark Dantonio’s team did, however, receive votes in one poll. The Spartans have 2 votes in the Amway Coaches Poll.

What it means: Michigan State earned back some respect after falling 38-18 at home to Notre Dame the week before. The win over Iowa, a team many had been high on after it took Penn State to the brink, proved notable to the national media.
A win over Michigan might do the trip to move the Spartans into the rankings, but that’s a whole lot easier said than done.
What’s next: Michigan State will head to Michigan Stadium to take on the Wolverines on Saturday. The game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
