0

Michigan State enter the Big Ten game 5-0 after easily beating Western Kentucky 48:31 in homecoming last weekend. The Spartans travel to Piscataway, New Jersey to face Rutgers in their first Big Ten East Battle of the season. Michigan State won convincingly against the Hilltoppers with the superstar performances of Jayden Reed and Kenneth Walker III teaming up for six touchdowns and over 400 yards offensive provided. The Spartans drove to a comfortable three-possession win after 42 points in the first half.

Michigan State scored just six points in the second half; They took their foot off the accelerator. MSU was beaten 15-6 by Western Kentucky in the second half; For the first time this season, the Spartans were beaten in one half.

Once again, the offense thrived on a balanced attack to move the ball and get into the end zone. MSU gained 528 yards on Saturday, including 327 meters through the air and 201 meters from the ground. This kept the Western Kentucky defenses upset throughout the game, allowing one explosive game after another. The Spartans will try to maintain this energy when they go up against the Scarlet Knights.

Defense is also its biggest challenge this season; They dropped a season high of 31 points to Western Kentucky. Hilltopper quarterback Bailey Zappe moved the ball at will and threw for 488 yards, but the MSU defense held strong in the red zone. The defense allowed three touchdowns and three field goals in a total of seven trips to the red zone. They were able to shrink and hold the field without breaking under the pressure of the fast and powerful Hilltoppers offensive.

According to MSU head coach Mel Tucker, MSU will most likely still be without defensive end Drew Beesley and running back Elijah Collins, who are still sore.

Rutgers is 3-2 and 0-2 in the Big Ten this year, losing to Michigan and Ohio State. The schedule doesn’t get any easier for the Scarlet Knights, who will welcome the eleventh-placed Spartans to their third game in a row against a Ranked Big Ten enemy.

Rutgers suffered an embarrassing 52-13 loss at home to Ohio last week State behind, where they gave up 45 points in the first half. The Buckeyes were able to win 541 yards of attack, scoring 52 points against the Scarlet Knight defense, which had only allowed 54 points in the past four weeks.

This defense is led by linebacker Olakunle Fatukasi, who is 49th Tackles and 6.5 tackles for the loss, good for second place in the Big Ten. The Scarlet Knight defense generated eight turnovers in five games, including five fumbles. (CFBstats)

On the offensive, Rutgers is led by senior quarterback Noah Vedral. Vedral has 914 yards and six touchdown passes in five games and has completed 67% of his passes. Vedral’s favorite targets are wide receivers Aron Cruickshank and Bo Melton, as well as running back Isaih Pacheco, who has added three dazzling touchdowns this year.

The Rutgers offensive will grow after just 13 points in the last two games against Michigan and Ohio State recover strongly. You could have success through the air against the Spartan secondary that has been trying to stop opposing quarterbacks.

Like Michigan State, Rutgers’ motto is « keep choppin », coined by Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano. The Scarlet Knights pride themselves on playing tough, die-hard football until the final whistle and will keep up with the physicality of Michigan State step by step.

Schiano was worried when MSU used « Keep Choppin ‘ » as their team motto, What For caused additional hype about the game. This is the rubber match between the Big Ten East’s two chopper teams.
