The Michigan State Spartans make the trip to Minneapolis to take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers, in a big showdown under the lights.
Michigan State Spartans
After a disappointing season last year the Michigan State Spartans were hoping for better results this season, and so far that has been the case.
They come into this game with a 4-1 record with the only loss coming against Notre Dame, in a game they got blew out in.
In their last game they took on their rival, the Michigan Wolverines in the pouring rain at the big house. The defense took advantage of the wet conditions and a struggling quarterback to force turnovers and they ended up winning 14-10.
On the defensive side of the ball the Spartans have played really well. They come into this game giving up 16.4 points per game which is 14th in the country.
In this game the Gophers have had turnover issues so the Spartans need to make sure they force them. If they can do that they should come out ahead in this game.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
On the other side of this match up is the Minnesota Golden Gophers who had a nice start to their season, but has struggled in the last couple of games, and both of those games have been an uptick of talent on the opponents.
The biggest change in the losses have been the turnover battle. In the first three wins of the season the won the turnover battle, but in the last two games they struggled with turnovers and lost that battle.
The other big issue they have is their quarterback play. Conor Rhoda is the quarterback for this team. but he hasn’t had a lot of success this year, but the Gophers don’t really have anyone else to turn to.
To win this game it’s probably going to take a near perfect game on both sides of the field. On the offensive side they need to get out to fast start and try to get out to a lead, and hope they can hold on at the end of the game to win.
