Michigan State is not bending under pressure, even if the rest of the country continues to battle parity.

The ninth week of the season was certainly entertaining but, once again, consistency wasn't the storyline. Nine ranked teams lost over the weekend and yet Michigan State emerged from the nine-team pileup with a thrilling comeback against rival Michigan.
