4. Scott/London will both have 100+ yards

Watching the first game of the year was both stressful and rewarding for fans of Michigan State.

The stressful part of the game was watching Connor Cook continuously overthrow his receivers and the defense struggle mightily to stop the aerial attack in the second half. As for the positives? True freshman L.J. Scott and redshirt freshman Madre London both looked great — as did Gerald Holmes — in the backfield.

Michigan State has relied on Jeremy Langford and Le’Veon Bell over the past 3-4 years and it’s an empty feeling knowing that it will be relying on three unproven running backs and one who is coming off a suspension and will possibly be redshirted in 2015.

In this game, the Spartans’ strong offensive lines will open holes against an average Oregon defense line. So much so, in fact, that both London and Scott will account for over 100 yards.

London will start the game just as he did last week and have 75 yards in the first half, opening up the defense for the pass game as Cook will also benefit from the successful rushing attack.

Scott will come on late, again, and finish with over 100 yards in the second half — most of it will come on a big run to seal the game.
