The latest AP and Coaches polls were released Tuesday, and there’s a new Big Ten team pacing the conference in both. That team? Michigan State, of course!
The Associated Press preseason college football poll was released Sunday afternoon, and four Big Ten teams are ranked. Ohio State and Michigan State are both ranked in the Top 10, as the Buckeyes appear at No. 5, while the Spartans are ranked No. 8. Wisconsin (No. 14) and Nebraska (No. 22) also are ranked.
The 2014 preseason Coaches Poll came out Thursday morning, and while four Big Ten teams appear in the top-25 rankings, there are several surprises that stand out. Where is Michigan on the list, or how about Iowa? Which Big Ten teams are ranked too high, or too low? Our BTN.com panelists sounded off on the biggest surprises from the preseason polls.

Because everyone gobbles up those way-too-early top 25 polls the day after the college football season ends, there’s such a thing as post-Signing Day top 25s. There can never be enough college football coverage, right? ESPN.com’s Mark Schlabach recently released his post-Signing Day Top 25, and it includes five Big Ten teams.
The grass stains and bruises are still fresh from last night’s BCS title game, a scintillating triumph for Florida State over Auburn that ended the SEC’s seven-season run of dominance. That hasn’t stopped some people from turning the page – and quickly. Mark Schlabach of ESPN.com already has an early, early—and I mean EARLY—2014 Top 25.

The final polls are out, and Michigan State is No. 3 in the AP and Coaches polls – see the full lists here. The results are really no shock. I think the Spartans could have made a case to be ranked as high as No. 2. But, Auburn got that spot, even though the Tigers lost the BCS championship game to Florida State. Had Auburn been blown out by the Seminoles, Michigan State likely could have secured the No. 2 slot.
The final Coaches Poll was released Sunday morning, and Michigan State’s Mark Dantonio ranked his team No. 2. The Spartans, the Big Ten champions, came in at No. 4 in the latest poll. Check out Dantonio’s top 10 in this post. Also, see how every coach voted.
