Another Saturday in the books, another week closer to Oct. 30: Michigan at Michigan State football.
Michigan and Michigan State both came out of road tests unscathed Saturday, with the Wolverines surviving Nebraska, 32-29, on a late turnover, field goal and another defensive stop, and the Spartans racing past Rutgers, 31-13, thanks to a dynamic offensive attack.
And both programs are securely ranked inside the top 10 of the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll. The Wolverines moved up one spot past Penn State to No. 7; the Spartans climbed two spots to No. 9. Neither were ranked entering the season, and here they are, 6-0 and bowl eligible after six weeks.
