Indiana faces Michigan State on Saturday, November 14th at Spartan Stadium for a Week 11 NCAA football Big Ten matchup.
Indiana is coming off a statement win over Michigan in Week 10 by the final score of 38-21. Indiana covered the number easily in that one, beating Michigan by three scores at home to move its record to 3-0 on the year. Indiana is now ranked #10 in the nation according to the AP Polls, which no one could have imagined heading into the season. Indiana has wins over Penn State, Rutgers and Michigan, as its record is also 3-0 in Big Ten play. Indiana has scored 37.0 points per game and has earned 339.3 total yards per contest as well. Indiana has allowed 25.7 points per game to the opposition as well, as its defense has done a decent job against the tough competition Indiana has faced. Indiana's quarterback Michael Penix Jr. has had a great start to the season, throwing for 750 yards, seven touchdowns and only one interception through his first three games.
Michigan State simply did not show up in its game against Iowa in Week 10 on the road. Michigan State imploded by the final score of 49-7 in what was one of the worst losses in school history for the Spartans. Michigan State is now 1-2 on the year, as the team's only win so far this season was against Michigan on the road. Michigan State has scored 20.3 points per game and has earned 368.0 total yards of offense per contest as well. Michigan State's defense has struggled miserably, allowing 37.0 points per game to its oppositions. Michigan State will look to put its Week 10 struggles behind it and upset a tough Indiana school.
Indiana opens as 8-point favorites and the total is set at 53. I like Michigan State to bounce back at home and keep this game close. I am not ready to consider Indiana a top-ten team in the nation, and I think the bookies are giving the Hoosiers a little too much love.
