Michigan State has enjoyed a great start to their football season, winning both of their first games out of the gate.

Now, RJ Young of FOX Sports has named the Spartans one of the top 20 football teams in the U.S., landing at No. 18, thanks to their strong early performance.

MSU’s offensive line has been solid, too, and was actually ranked No. 2 in the country in week two by PFF, following a stellar performance against Youngstown State.

I’m pumped to see the Spartans getting some national attention and hope the upward trend continues. Fingers crossed!

Check out highlights from last weekend’s game below.
