2. Michigan State football scores a TD on its first drive
Through three weeks, Michigan State has been abnormally slow out of the gates. In fact, the Spartans haven’t scored a touchdown on their first drive yet this season. Heck, they haven’t even kicked a field goal on their first drive. Michigan State has seven first-quarter points this season and they came halfway through the first 15 minutes against Richmond.
That’s not great.
Against Maryland, I think we’ll see the Spartans come out hotter than normal, feeding off the homecoming crowd and they’ll score a go-ahead touchdown in the first five minutes.
Will this be enough to ignite confidence in the offense and get the defense to believe in an upset enough to lock Taulia Tagovailoa down on the other side? Let’s hope so, but we’ll take any points we can get after a horrid performance in Week 3 in which Michigan State scored just seven total points in a blowout loss to Washington.
There will be some good vibes in East Lansing thanks to an opening-drive touchdown. A very rare sight these days.
