Why Michigan State Will Win

Michigan State is going to try.

It might be a little bit different if the Spartans were 7-3 and playing out the string of the regular season before going off to a bowl, but they’re 4-6 with an ugly, ugly five-game losing streak.

The offense has gone bye-bye against the good teams – scoring ten points or fewer in the blowout losses to Ohio State, Wisconsin, Penn State and Michigan.

Now it’s time to have a little fun.

As bad as the Rutgers offense is, the defense is almost as miserable. It’s not generating a lick of pressure into the backfield, the secondary can get dinked and dunked on to death, and MSU should be able to mix it up to do whatever it wants to.

Considering fourth quarter collapse in the loss to Illinois a few weeks ago, the Spartans are going to keep their foot on the gas.

Why Rutgers Will Win

Maybe the Michigan State offense is just that bad.

It’s been inconsistent at best, it’s not getting enough pop from the passing game that’s all over the place, and there’s no running game to fall back on.

Again, playing some of the best teams in college football has had something to do with it, but the running game has fallen off the map. It rumbled over Illinois for 275 yards and three scores, but that’s been about it for the production on the ground since the win over Western Michigan in early September.

Michigan State might be able put up a ton of yards, but can it go on long, sustained marches?

The punting game is one of the things that’s going right for Rutgers. Senior Adam Korsak is getting plenty of opportunities, and he’s blasting away for close to 44 yards per kick. If he can somehow keep the Spartans pinned deep, there’s a shot for several drives – MSU is miserable on third downs – to simply fizzle out.

What’s Going To Happen

Michigan State will go off, and then it’ll show mercy.

It needs to win this week and beat Maryland to close out the regular season and get bowl eligible. After all of the misery and pain since the 4-1 start, the Spartans will finally be able to exhale.
