Is this the week that Michigan State finally breaks through for their first Big Ten win of the year?
The Spartans head to Minnesota this weekend looking to snap a five-game losing streak and pick up their first win in conference play. Michigan State is 2-5 overall and 0-4 in Big Ten play this year.
See what the Spartans Wire staff thinks in our weekly Michigan State predictions below:
Prediction: MSU 10, Minnesota 17
It pains me to put Minnesota over MSU here, but Michigan State has yet to win a conference game and hasn’t earned much faith.
Prediction: MSU 16, Minnesota 20
Minnesota is not a good football team, but MSU still has to prove it that they are going to be able to win a football game. Could up/down theory be in play? Minnesota comes off a huge win at Iowa, while MSU hit rock bottom getting blown out by Michigan. Still, I can’t pick MSU on the road here.
Prediction: MSU 20, Minnesota 17
One of us three has to pick the Spartans here, right? It’s easy to count out the Spartans after last week’s embarrassing shutout loss vs. Michigan — but in that game it looked like Michigan State never quit fighting. So if this team hasn’t quit and can avoid critical mistakes, then I think they have it in them to beat Minnesota. The Spartans eventually will break through and I think this is the week they do.
