Although Kevin Wilson is a solid coach and has done great things for the Indiana Hoosiers in his four years, this game will prove to be no contest for the Spartans.

Nate Sudfield is back under center after being injured during the 2014 season, hurting his non-throwing shoulder. He is one of the most prolific passers in the conference and he has the opportunity to surprise some people with his strong arm.

There’s no doubt the Indiana offense will be just as potent, if not more, as last year’s squad even without Tevin Coleman at running back. Former UAB star Jordan Howard will come in as the new running back and he had proven to be a hot commodity on the transfer market this offseason.

Defensively, though, the Hoosiers have been known to struggling, ranking 100th in scoring defense and 93rd in total defense a season ago. If that wasn’t bad enough, only five starters return to the mediocre unit as the secondary may be the most unproven in the league — even outside of the Spartans who also have three new starters.

Cook will have yet another solid passing day at home and he’ll be out of the game by the end of the third quarter, paving the way for Damion Terry and Tyler O’Connor to get some snaps.

Madre London will struggle early, but turn it on in the third quarter before giving way to Scott, Williams and even Gerald Holmes. The offense will have a big day.

Prediction: Indiana 24, Michigan State 49 (8-0)
