With the 2018 season just weeks away, what should we expect from Michigan State football? A look at the complete game-by-game predictions.

Can you name a Michigan State team that garnered higher expectations than this one in the Mark Dantonio era? The Spartans are coming off a 10-3 season and are returning 19 starters so an 11 or 12-win regular season isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

Dantonio will need to see an uptick in offensive production from a unit that brings back 10 starters, including star quarterback Brian Lewerke, running back LJ Scott and a strong trio of receivers in Darrell Stewart Jr., Felton Davis III and Cody White. Plus, the depth at receiver and on the offensive line will carry this team to an elite level.

Defensively, the Spartans bring back nine starters, including All-Big Ten middle linebacker Joe Bachie as well as one of the best defensive backfields in America, led by Khari Willis, David Dowell, Justin Layne and, when healthy, Josiah Scott. The defensive line is the only question mark on this side of the ball.

With that in mind, how well will Michigan State fare in 2018? Take a look at our complete game-by-game predictions.
