It’s been about a month since Michigan State football won a game and that’s something that has driven everyone in East Lansing crazy.
The Spartans were ranked in the top 15 nationally to start the season and they’ve since lost four games and none of them have been all that close. It’s time to get back in the win column however, and what better way than to face a struggling team from the Big Ten West?
Michigan State’s homecoming game is against a 3-3 Wisconsin team that fired its head coach two weeks ago.
This is the time to get back on track. Let’s get bold first.
3. Finally, a 100-yard rusher
It’s been a few games since Michigan State has boasted a 100-yard rusher, but I think that’ll change on Saturday afternoon in East Lansing.
The last time Michigan State had a back rush for 100 yards was all the way back in Week 2 against Akron when Jalen Berger did it for a second straight game. Consider this his revenge game.
I’ve been clamoring for Elijah Collins to get RB1 duties, but I think the staff will allow Berger to get the start here against his former team and he’ll take his anger out.
Berger is going to rush for 100-plus yards and finally get the run game back on track. It’s not going to be easy against a fairly solid Wisconsin defense, but I think Berger has it in him.
Hopefully this sets off a chain reaction for the rest of the offense.
