6. MICHIGAN STATE
Points: 6 football, 44.5 basketball, 50.5 total
The buzz: Michigan State won a basketball title in 2000, reached the championship game in 2009 and also advanced to the Final Four in 1999, 2005 and '10. Finishing seventh in the coaches' poll in 1999 helped give the Spartans enough football points to qualify.

Points: 6.5 football, 24 basketball, 30.5 total

12. ALABAMA
