Week 2 - Bowling Green at MSU

After last week's debacle in Ann Arbor, coaches around the country are warning their teams not to overlook their lesser opponents.

While Bowling Green comes to East Lansing from the Mid-American Conference, they took down Big Ten rival Minnesota in Minnesota last week, 32-31. Let's hope Coach Dantonio has the troops ready for the Falcons, we all know the Spartans have not handled success well in the past.

Things to look for:

- MSU's running game: BGSU gave up 246 rushing yards to the Gophers last week. The running game is the strength of MSU, so look for Jehuu Caulcrick and Javon Ringer to get the ball early and often.

- MSU's secondary: They will be tested againt Bowling Green's air attack, which rang up 412 yards through the air against Minnesota.Look for Nehemiah Warrick and Otis Wiley to step up their game at the safety position while Kendall Davis-Clark and Ross Weaver will have to play big at the corners.

Prediction: MSU 45-17
