Michigan State football has won two of the past three games and that followed up a four-game losing skid in the month of October. It’s been nice to see this team bounce back and fight through adversity to potentially put itself in a position to make a bowl.
If you would have told me during the four-game losing streak that Michigan State would beat Wisconsin and then go on the road to beat a ranked, first-place Illinois team, I would have called you insane. But here we are.
Now Rutgers comes to town with a fifth win on the line. Will the Spartans take care of business against Greg Schiano and Co.?
Let’s get bold.
3. A tight end will score a touchdown
It’s been two months since a tight end scored a touchdown for Michigan State. That’s way too long for an offense that was supposed to utilize tight ends like the “MVP” of the offense.
I honestly thought we might see Daniel Barker scoring a touchdown a week ago against his former team, but the wind kind of altered those expectations. The offense didn’t air it out a ton but I think that changes on Saturday in a chilly East Lansing environment.
Barker could score a touchdown on Saturday which would be his second of the year or we could see Maliq Carr finally cross the goal line after coming close a couple of times over the past three games.
Either way, I think a tight end reaches the end zone.
