Looking ahead, a year from now, this game will simply be a routine Big Ten conference affair, but this week it’s a huge non-conference football gambling matchup.
In contrast to last week’s triumphant Washington win, which marked their impressive 9th consecutive victory, the upcoming week for the Spartans is poised to be fraught with controversy and heightened emotions.
The abrupt suspension of Coach Mel Tucker on Sunday, amidst allegations of sexual harassment, has cast a shadow over the team’s preparations for a really good Dawgs team.

4* Free Week 3 NCAA Betting Prediction: Washington -16.5
This Saturday, a colossal matchup unfolds on the college football stage. Although not yet conference rivals, Washington and Michigan State looks like an awesome early season non-conference showdown.
For me, it’s a highlight of Week 3 action, and Washington’s passing attack should build off last week’s good performance against Tulsa.
Being favored by 16.5 on the road, I’m liking Washington to cover.
While the MSU defense is solid, it falls short of being exceptional. I doubt they have the firepower needed to contain UW effectively.
To make matters more challenging, the Spartans will need a well-thought-out strategy to halt Michael Penix, who has already amassed an impressive 859 YDS passing and 8 TDs in just 2 games, with a remarkable 73% completion rate and only 1 INT.
