#17 Michigan State Spartans at #18 Michigan Wolverines

Saturday October 9, 2010 3:30 PM EST

Line: Michigan -4.5

This in state Big Ten battle could be the biggest matchup of the weekend. Both teams come in ranked. Both teams come in with 5-0 records and look to improve their 1-0 Big Ten records. After a big win last week over ranked Wisconsin, the Spartans look to continue their winning ways vs the in state rival Wolverines. This is however the first road game for this Spartan team. Michigan has been amazing this year and look to improve their 3-0 record at home.

Michigan State has been equal on both sides of the football. On defense, they are only allowing 18.6 points a game which is 36th in the nation. Their offense has averaged 36.2 points a game, 24th overall. They have had good balance on offense as well. Their passing game comes in at 38th with 240.4 yards a game. Their rushing game has been even better with 220.2 yards a game, 20th best. RBs Edwin Baker and Le’Veon Bell have combined for over 1,000 yards with 12 TDs. Junior QB Kirk Cousins has been solid with 1,132 yards 9 TDs and 4 Ints.

The weak spot for Michigan has been their defense. This defense has allowed 25.4 points per game, 71st in the nation. Their offense has been stellar ranking at 10th overall with 41.4 points a game. Michigan has been able to run the ball at will with 324.4 yards a game which is 4th best in the nation. Sophomore QB Denard Robinson leads the ground attack with 905 yards and 8 TDs. He has been spectacular with 1,008 passing yards with 7 TDs and only 1 Int. The Heisman watch will be out for Mr. Robinson.

This is one of the toughest football picks of the week. This game could go really either way. Michigan State has been playing great football on both sides. Michigan’s offense has been stellar while their defense has been worse than average. The fact that this is Michigan States first away game worries me a little bit. It is going to be loud at the Michigan stadium considering they have been wanting a winning team so bad for so long. This Wolverine team, lead by Denard Robinson, should get the job done. This game will revolve around the Wolverine defense and the legs and arm of Robinson.
