#10 Michigan State Spartans at Penn State Nittany Lions

Saturday November 27, 2010 12:00 PM EST

Line: Michigan State -1.5

Michigan State has won two straight and squeeked out a close one last weekend vs Purdue in a 35-31 victory. They have only played 3 road games and are 2-1 in those 3. Penn State beat a poor Indiana team last week 41-24. This is their final home game of the season, and no worries Joe-Pa will be back next year.

Stats to consider:

Michigan State Spartans:

  • The Spartans are 10-1 with a 6-1 Big Ten record.
  • They are 2-1 on the road.
  • Points against per game: 19.9 (23rd)
  • Points for per game: 31.6 (38th)
  • Passing yards a game: 244.2 (38th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 169.4 (42nd)

Penn State Lions:

  • The Lions are 7-4 with a 4-3 Big Ten record.
  • They are 6-1 at home.
  • Points against per game: 22.1 (40th)
  • Points for per game: 24.8 (81st)
  • Passing yards a game: 223.9 (58th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 148.2 (71st)

What to watch for:

  • Spartan Junior QB Kirk Cousins has thrown for 2,553 yards 18 TDs and 9 Ints. In the one Spartans road loss, Cousins threw 3 Ints.
  • Spartan ¬†Sophomore RB Edwin Baker has rushed for 1,069 yards and 12 TDs. He has 269 yards and 5 TDs in his last 2 games.
  • Lions Senior RB Evan Royster has ¬†played well. He has 831 yards and 5 TDs while adding 165 receiving yards and a TD. He has failed to rush over 50 yards both of the last two games.

Most football picks focus on the QB position. Spartans QB Kirk Cousins has played extremely well this season and has a chance to lead his team to a Big Ten title. The Spartans have played well all season long, and their one loss was at a very good Iowa team. I think the Spartans will come out with a mission and get it done on the road this week in their season finale.
