Michigan State 20, Indiana 15 Reaction

Really, Michigan State? You do know that Indiana’s defense isn’t all that great.

To be fair, the Hoosiers have been middle-of-the-pack okay this year defensively, but for a Michigan State team that’s pushing towards something special, struggling to move the ball for long stretches and only coming up with 241 yards wasn’t okay.

There were just enough big plays on both sides to survive and advance, and the defense picked up the slack for the offense, but this isn’t going to work against Michigan in two weeks if the team isn’t refreshed.

12 penalties, struggles on third downs, little control of the clock, two turnovers, no consistent push by the offensive front – it was ugly. Sometimes, though, good teams have to push through the rough days, and the Spartans did just that.

Now the real work begins.

It’s possible that Michigan State has yet to play a team that’s going to end up in a bowl game. What’s next after getting those two weeks off?

Michigan, at Purdue, Maryland, at Ohio State, Penn State.

The preseason is over.
