If there was a 12-team College Football Playoff this season, Michigan State would be in it after Week 4 of the season.
Ross Dellenger of Sports Illustrated is putting out a fictitious 12-team College Football Playoff bracket after each week, and this week included the Spartans. Dellenger listed the Spartans as a No. 3 seed after their 23-20 overtime victory over Nebraska.
Check out the complete bracket below:
How would a 12-team playoff look this week?
Our @SINow Fake Selection Committee has weighed in and, uh, the weekend's craziness means (1) a G5 getting a bye, (2) Wake Forest – WAKE FOREST – dancing and (3) Hogville welcoming in an old rival.https://t.co/ZfjGT4jDC0 pic.twitter.com/H8efCazcYR

I understand this is all for fun and games, but you got to admit it’s pretty cool to see the Spartans even mentioned in this type of conversation. I personally don’t think Michigan State is a true College Football Playoff contender, but I suppose anything is possible right now.
Michigan State returns to the field this Saturday against Western Kentucky. Kickoff for that matchup is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. EDT.
