This week three matchup will see the Arizona State Sun Devils out of the PAC-12 facing off against the Michigan State Spartans out of the Big 10.
The Sun Devils beat the Spartans last year by a score of 16-13. Now that this is a home game for the Spartans, they will be looking for revenge.
Arizona State Sun Devils
The Sun Devils are 2-0 to start the season, but have not looked very good overall. They beat Sacramento State 19-7. They were a 35-point favorite in this game, so winning the game by only 12 is concerning.
Arizona State had 395 yards of total offense, but could not score to save their lives. They scored four straight field goals before finally scoring a touchdown on a long 72-yard pass.
Jayden Daniels had a pretty good game under center, going 17 for 27 with 304 yards passing. However, he threw just 1 touchdown pass.
Their running game was not very good either as they totaled 91 yards. They ran the ball 39 times so they had an average of just 2.3 yards per carry. Their leading was Eno Benjamin, who ran for 69 yards on 24 carries.
Defensively they did a pretty good job overall. They allowed 42 rushing yards, but 263 yards through the air. They allow 252.5 yards per game on average which is 21st in the country. They have however not faced a team like Michigan State this season, so I could see the Sun Devils really struggling in this spot.
Michigan State Spartans
The Spartans are also 2-0 on the season, but they also have not been challenged. They won against Western Michigan last week 51-17. This was a game they were never in danger of losing and dominated
The offense has been good this season but in all honesty, they have not had to do much. They average 442.5 yards per game, which is 54th in the country.
Leading the offense is Brian Lewerke. He threw for 314 yards last week and had three touchdowns and one interceptions.
Elijah Collins had a monster game, rushing for 192 yards on 17 carries. He did not even score a touchdown which is crazy given the amount of yards he ended up with.
The Spartans also had a huge game from Darrell Stewart Jr, who caught 10 passes for 185 yards an one touchdown.
Defense is where Michigan State is looking to dominate each an every week. They currently have the best rush defense in the country, allowing an average of -3 yards per game. Yes, you read that right. Against Tulsa in week one they allowed -73 rushing yards due to sacks and in week two they allowed 67 rushing yards.
The Spartans have play-makers all over the field and should be able to have success on the offensive side of the ball again.
