When Michigan State heads into Camp Randall on Saturday, it will be a matchup of two of the most disappointing teams in the Big Ten. MSU came into this season with high hopes and their eyes on a Big Ten title. Wisconsin is coming off of back to back Rose Bowl appearances. Although few expected the Badgers to win a title, a lot of people expected them to be more competitive. The Badgers are tabbed as six point favorites in this game. Can they cover that number? Can Michigan State keep up the momentum from a game well played last week?
Michigan State has struggled on offense, but they still have a good defense. Last week, they went into Michigan Stadium and came very close to knocking off Denard Robinson and company. At the end of the day, they came up just short. The offense looks to be playing a little bit better, especially in the passing game. If they can keep up the firepower this week, they might leave Madison with a good win.
Wisconsin has been up and down this season. They have looked very good in some spots and very bad in others. This would seem to be a decent matchup for Wisconsin. They have the strength up front and in the middle to match up with the Spartans. While Sparty is able to run over a lot of teams with pure power, it is doubtful they will do that here. Wisconsin also gets to play at home – a place where they are very good.
If Wisconsin brings its best game – the one it has brought for two straight weeks – it should be able to handle Sparty in this game. MSU has some decent weapons, though, and they match up pretty well in this one. The Spartans will be looking for some sweet revenge after a couple of bad losses last year. Wisconsin will be looking to protect its home field against a familiar opponent. No one would be surprised if either won in this game.
