Michigan State football hasn’t had the best past couple of weeks after a 2-0 start to the season, dropping to 2-2 and getting out-scored 72-16.
The Spartans will hit the road for the first time this season on Saturday, heading to Iowa City for a primetime matchup with the Hawkeyes. It’s not going to be an easy matchup, but the Spartans do stand a fighting chance against this Iowa offense.
Let’s dive into some bold predictions.
3. Maliq Carr approaches 100 yards
Maliq Carr had a quiet start to the season, catching just two passes for 30 yards against Central Michigan and Richmond but he’s really come on strong over the past two games.
Is it because Noah Kim is starting to rely on him more with less time to throw in the pocket? Potentially, but Carr has made the most of his recent opportunities, catching eight passes for 83 yards over the past two games. He’s actually seen his yards per game increase each week and I think it’ll improve from the 50 he put up against Maryland.
Carr is going to have a third straight impressive game, catching six passes for 90 yards to help the offense move the ball against a stingy defense.
