Washington went 11-2 last year and returns the bulk of its talent. They've looked as good as expected behind QB Michael Penix Jr (8 TDs, 1 INT) in wins over Boise State (56-19) and Tulsa (43-10). College football favorites of 10.5 to 21 points like Washington with an experienced QB returning after gaining 7.25 or more yards per play in back-to-back contests are 44-14 ATS against an opponent with an inexperienced quarterback. Michigan State QB Payton Thorne transferred to Auburn, so they've been starting QB Noah Kim, who threw 19 passes in 2022. This is their first real test after opening against Central Michigan and Richmond and the Spartans are 2-12 ATS versus the Pac 12. Washington topped Michigan State a year ago, 39-28, rolling up 503 total yards while leading 29-8 at the half. Play Washington.
