Michigan State football will face another Big Ten foe in Rutgers this weekend. Of course, the Spartans started their season on a dour note last year with a 38-27 loss at home to the Scarlet Knights, so this will be a major grudge match for an undefeated MSU team.

Below, we compiled the best quotes from Michigan State running backs coach William Peagler, defensive line coach Ron Burton, and quarterback Payton Thorne.

Burton and the team haven't forgotten last season

Kenneth Walker even better than he was on tape

Peagler thinks having running backs play special teams will help their NFL stock

Peagler thinks Kenneth Walker III has a real shot at the Heisman

Payton Thorne thinks Jayden Reed and Kenneth Walker III both should have early Heisman buzz
