** 2018 Opponent Previews: Michigan State (Game 11) **

Recommended Posts



CollegeFootballNews: Yeah, Michigan State is a superpower program, and this should be just the team to cement that status.

After all of the horrible headlines in a very, very rough several months for the school and the athletic department, and after the basketball team went out with a whimper, Spartan fans are about to be in for something fun from the football side of things.

It’s possible Michigan State could be even better than it was when it won the Big Ten title and went to the College Football Playoff in 2015. This isn’t some try-hard team that gets by with grit and attitude. It’s one of the big boys, with six double-digit win campaigns in the last eight.

Get ready for another.

At least the game is after they play PSU, Michigan and a week after OSU. I agree that they’ll be a good team next year.

That's about as easy as a Big Ten East schedule realistically gets, so there is opportunity. Michigan St in recent years is weird, though. They're somewhere between 2 and 3 games closer to .500 each year than their actual win totals. 2013/2014 they were really strong each year on one side of the ball, those were pretty legit teams, but these last three are suspect. The good teams not as good as they appear, but the bad ones not as bad.


The problem they have is while they have a pretty good defense, top 20 caliber, it's only good enough to be the 4th best in their division. The Big Ten had 8 teams last year in the top 30 for yards per play, and a lot of that is because the conference boasts some of the worst offenses in college football. Michigan St was 92nd in points per game and 100th in yards per play. That doesn't leave much margin for error.
