Michigan State should be in the top 4 this week. It doesn't really matter as the Spartans will make the playoff as long as they win in Indy, but they have a top 4 resume and earned more style points than Iowa after crushing Penn State. Spartans could have played tight today but made huge plays in all three phases. Unless Oklahoma wins tonight, who has a better overall resume?
