Despite movement in Top 10, Michigan State stays idle in latest AP Poll

There was a lot of shake-up in the Associated Press Top 10, but the Spartans hold their spot for the third consecutive week

For the third consecutive week, Michigan State men's basketball holds the No. 10 spot in the weekly Associated Press Top 25 poll.

The Spartans defeated Nebraska, 79-67, in their lone games this week. Michigan State's scheduled game against rival Michigan was postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak within the Wolverines' program.

While the Spartans stayed neutral in Week 10's poll, there was a lot of shuffling amongst other Top 10 teams. At 15-0, Baylor remains the No. 1 team in the land, followed by new No. 2 Gonzaga and No. 3 UCLA, each of whom jumped two spots.

No. 4 Auburn jumped five spots this week after wins over Florida and South Carolina. The Tigers have won 11 in a row. Meanwhile, No. 5 USC and No. 6 Arizona State both climbed two spots.
