1. MSU will win by double-digits

It’s pretty obvious that this Michigan State vs Oregon game will be one of the biggest in Spartan Stadium history and many are looking forward to the recruiting news off the field as well — over 100 football and basketball recruits will be in attendance for the contest.

Michigan State will be considered the top destination for college football viewers and the Spartans will put on a show for the national audience. A season ago, College GameDay made its way to Eugene, Oregon, for the Ducks-Spartans game and MSU got handled; this season will be different.

Connor Cook will rebound from last week’s mediocre performance to throw for over 300 yards and a couple touchdowns, exploiting the Oregon secondary and proving to be more than it can handle through the air.

Adams will have a solid game for the Ducks, but it won’t be enough to continue through the fourth quarter as he will be fatigued with the game clock running out.

Michigan State’s defense will bend, but not break, in this one as the Spartans will put out a 42-27 victory over the Ducks at home despite all the talk of the ‘electric’ offense in which Oregon displays.
