Coming into Saturday’s Central Michigan vs Michigan State game, the Spartans were expected to really put the beatdown on the Chippewas at home. Cooper Rush and the rest of the Central Michigan Chips had a different idea, taking a 17-10 game into the fourth quarter before the Spartans’ strength ultimately prevailed.

Michigan State has a lot to work on in the weeks moving forward, but staying ranked No. 2 in the country can be considered a big win for this team moving out of non-conference play and gearing up for Big Ten action.

Unfortunately for the Spartans, however, their win over then-No. 7 Oregon in week two is looking much less impressive as the Ducks were just dismantled at home, 62-20, by the Utah Utes. The Spartans will need to build on a resume moving forward and they ultimately control their own destiny as they’ll be facing the No. 1 team in the country on Nov. 21.

It’s that time of the week again as we grade the Spartans based on their performance from Saturday’s game. How did each of Michigan State’s units fare in week four against Central Michigan? Did anyone deserve an ‘A’ this week? When will the Spartans whole team put together a solid performance?
