Saturday’s Minnesota versus Michigan State football game is an interesting one in the eyes of just about everyone. The Spartans are home underdogs fresh off a loss to Washington in Week 3.
Minnesota is undefeated and has one of the best offenses as well as defenses in the country but the Gophers haven’t exactly played anyone. Colorado was their toughest test and you could argue that the Buffaloes are the worst Power Five team in football.
Michigan State needs a win here to get back on track and Mel Tucker is 2-0 after losses since the COVID-19 year (don’t feel like counting that one for this stat since it was a mess).
Let’s get bold ahead of this potential Michigan State football bounce-back game.
3. Keon Coleman has over 100 yards again
Fresh off his career game at Washington, Keon Coleman has to be feeling good. He was already confident before, but grabbing nine passes for 116 yards and two touchdowns in the Spartans’ first road test of the season has to really set him up for the rest of the season.
Coleman looked like a true No. 1 receiver with Jayden Reed out and if he’s still slowed or absent this week, we’ll see the sophomore wideout take over again.
Minnesota’s strength is its secondary, but they haven’t seen a receiving corps like the one Michigan State has so it’ll be strength on strength here. Coleman is going to rise up against a good secondary and really have a heck of a game that garners him even more attention in the Big Ten.
Two straight 100-yard games for the talented dual-sport athlete.
