2. Michigan State Spartans, 8-0 (4-0)
Connor Cook and Michigan State are going to be in the conversation to be one of the four teams in the second College Football Playoff.
At this point in the season, the Spartans still aren’t receiving the national attention that they deserve. No one is viewing them as a contender in the Big Ten right now or as a team that could make it into the playoff.
That is a big mistake, as Michigan State has put together a dangerous offense to go along with a stout defense.
Mark Dantonio has his team playing fundamental football and always has. Michigan State is a team to keep a close eye on over the next few weeks to see whether or not they can compete for a title this season.
