Week two’s Michigan State vs Oregon game is filled with keys to victory for each side. The Ducks will need to find a way to slow down the Spartans’ offensive attack while Michigan State will need to do the same thing with Oregon.

Mark Dantonio had eight days to prepare for this game and the Spartans needed it. It was just a week ago when they had a tough time slowing down the Western Michigan passing attack on their way to a 37-24 win.

Oregon is one of the most electric teams in the nation, but the defense is a vulnerability, which happens to benefit MSU. Oregon’s offensive attack, led by Eastern Washington transfer QB Vernon Adams, is definitely difficult to defense, but the Spartans have prepared for top dual-threat quarterbacks before, so this will be no different.

This is the first top-10 matchup of the season and East Lansing will be rocking on Saturday night as College GameDay will be featuring this contest as the game of the week.

Michigan State is the No. 5 team in the country while Oregon comes in as the No. 7 team and has the advantage in this series as they took the victory a year ago in Eugene, Oregon.

Dantonio and Mark Helfrich will be facing off in the game of the week, but I believe the Spartans will come out on top, ultimately, and I am here to give three reasons why.

Take a look at just why I think the Spartans will come out on top in this one.
