We have reached week eight of the college football season which means a lot of conference showdowns. In this game it’s a Big Ten showdown and rivalry game when the Michigan Wolverines make the trip to East Lansing to take on the Michigan State Spartans.
The visiting team has won the last three games played between the two teams.
The Michigan Wolverines started off the season with a loss against Notre Dame but if they still win out they have a chance to make the college football playoffs.
They come into this game flying high. They took on the Wisconsin Badgers and it was expected to be a close showdown.
The defense was impressive and the offense was even better running up the score winning by a final score of 38-13. On the offensive side of the ball the Wolverines are led by Shea Patterson who has thrown for 1311 yards, 10 touchdowns and three interceptions.
In this game the Wolverines need to get out to a fast start on the offensive side of the ball. If they run up the score they won’t have any issue in this game.
Michigan State Spartans
On the other side of this matchup is the Michigan State Spartans who weren’t having a good season until their big victory last Saturday.
They took on the Penn State Nittany Lions and the defense stepped up in a big way. The offense did just enough and they came out ahead 21-17.
This isn’t a good offensive team, so the Spartans need the defense to be good again against a Wolverines team that is getting their offense going.
To win this game the Spartans need to try and control the clock. Every time they have the ball they need to try and burn the clock.
The fewer possessions the Wolverines have, the better the chance they can come out with a big upset in this rivalry game.
