ESPN FPI: Michigan State football game-by-game predictions for 2023 season

Will Michigan State get back to a bowl game in 2023 despite a brutally tough schedule? ESPN’s Football Power Index rating system believes so.

An updated version of ESPN’s FPI was released earlier in August, and the computer rating system was rather high on the Spartans. Michigan State came in as the fifth-highest-rated team in the Big Ten and listed at No. 31 nationally. That’s not too bad after a disappointing season in 2022.

So how many games does the ESPN FPI rating project the Spartans to win next year? Check out game-by-game predictions from ESPN’s FPI for each of Michigan State’s matchups in 2023:

Sept. 1: vs. Central Michigan

Sept. 9: vs. Richmond

Sept. 16: vs. Washington

Sept. 23: vs. Maryland

Sept. 30: at Iowa
