Michigan State has had quite the up and down season, from the low of losing to Rutgers to the high of beating Michigan last week.
Iowa has yet to have a high. They are winless through a couple of weeks.
Normally Iowa is pretty reliable but I am not sure where they are going to be this season.
Michigan State Spartans
After a couple of games, it is still hard to know what Michigan State really is. All you can really say is Tucker 1, Harbaugh 0.
QB Rocky Lombardi did not get a lot of playing time in the last couple of seasons. Now that the job is his he is making the most of it. The Spartans are in the Top 20 in the nation in passing.
His completion percentage was just over 50% against Michigan last week but I like the way he attacked, pushing the ball downfield.
Under coach Mark Dantonio the identity of the Spartans was always with defense. Mel Tucker is also a defense guy but so far the Spartans are giving up 31ppg. That is an area of improvement.
Michigan State is off an emotional, close win, that could mean they are due for a letdown in this spot.
Iowa is 0-2. That is obviously not a good start but they can take some solace in that both games were really close, losing by four points and one point to Purdue and Northwestern respectively.
The offense has not been very productive this season. Similar to Lombardi, Spencer Petras is getting his first crack at starting. It just isn’t going as well, especially last week when he threw three interceptions.
Playing a little more to form the defense has been very solid. They are only giving up 22ppg and are in the Top 20 in yards allowed per game.
Expectations could not have been super high for the Hawkeyes this season but this game is kind of must-win. Otherwise, they could easily be looking at an 0-5 start.

I am not totally sold on Michigan State being good but at the same time I was surprised that they were underdogs to the extent that they were in this one.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Michigan State +6.5
That created a buying opportunity for me. The loss to Rutgers was bad. Michigan State was messy and it cost them. They cleaned it up and beat a good opponent last week.
I am expecting another clean game and see this one coming down to the wire with a field goal likely to win it. MSU might even pull another upset.
