Poll talk: Michigan State receives 1 vote in 2017 AP Preseason Top 25

Michigan State enters the 2017 college football season unranked and picked up 1 vote in the preseason Associated Press rankings, released Monday.

The Spartans finished the 2016 season 3-9 and now enter 2017 outside the Top 25, just the second time in seven years they have been unranked in the preseason poll.

What it means: It’s a surprise that Michigan State is even in this spot. After last year’s disastrous campaign followed by the loss of a lot of talent on both sides of the ball, it would be quite a surprise to see the Spartans eventually break back into the rankings.

What’s next: Michigan State opens its season on Saturday, Sept. 2, against Bowling Green. The game will be broadcast at noon ET on ESPNU.

Here’s a link to the entire  AP poll as well as the  USA Today Coaches poll. Michigan State also received 1 vote in the coaches poll.
