The Game: MSU at Michigan

Okay.. Things have been quiet this week, despite it being Michigan/Michigan State week.. MSU got waxed by Ohio State at home last week, while Michigan looked good for a half at Penn State before getting crushed.

So which of these teams will show up? The U-M team that lost to Toledo? Or the one who was playing well against Penn State? Can MSU shake off what happened last week to battle against their arch rivals?

Depsite Michigan's poor record, MSU will need an all-around great effor to beat Michigan in Ann Arbor for the first time since 1990. They will need Ringer and Hoyer to play well, as well as get some turnovers on defense.

If there is a year for it to happen, THIS is the year.

MSU 24, U-M 14

Game 8 Prediction: OSU at MSU

Okay.. This is going to be ugly.. Both offenses will want to run the ball and then run it some more.. So this game will be won by the quarterbacks of both teams.. Can Brian Hoyer make enough plays for MSU? Can the freshman Terelle Pryor handle another tough road environment? With OSU play senior QB Todd Boekman?

Hoyer has shown he can make the plays.. Pryors stats have gone down in recent games..

MSU wins this one in old-chool Big Ten style: 20-17

The Biggest Game Since Last Week

Here it is.. The biggest game of the year since last week when MSU battled undefeated Northwestern.

If MSU wins this brawl against the Buckeyes, they are in the driver's seat for a 10-win season, a New Years Day bowl and possibly the Rose Bowl. Sure, sure that sounds like crazy talk, but a win vs. OSU puts them in a spot to defeat Michigan and Purdue and possibly Wisconsin. If Penn State is a good as everyone thinks they are, they could be in line for the National Championship game, putting MSU in the Rose Bowl.

Just saying...

Stay tuned for the prediction tomorrow..

Game 7 - MSU at Northwestern

This is a game which can make or break the season for the Spartans. They have not handled Northwestern very well over the last few years, including last year's home loss to the Wildcats in overtime.

The good news for the Spartans is that the road team has won the last three games in this series, including MSU's record-setting comeback victory in 2006 under the "legendary" John L. Smith.

MSU needs their secondary back healthy to defend the spread attack of the Wildcats. CJ Bacher will throw the ball all over the field, but will also dish the ball to Sutton on the ground.

However, Northwestern had a tough time with Iowa's running attack two weeks ago, so get ready for Ringer, Ringer and then some more Ringer.

MSU 28, Northwestern 27

Prediction: MSU at Indiana

Michigan State has had experience with mobile quarterback from Indiana. Does the name Antwaan Randle-El ring a bell with anyone? Never thought he'd stop running against MSU.

Kellen Lewis has already superseded Randle-El's career stats in rushing, passing, completions, touchdowns, etc.

MSU is also coming off a nice win last week and as all Spartan fans know, the team has not always handles success well. But THAT is the difference with a Dantonio coached team. They could have folded the tent last year after blowing the game to Michigan, but they didn't. I don't think they will let the Notre Dame game get to their heads either.

MSU 34-17
