The Washington Huskies are getting the benefit of the doubt here because they're at home, and they have a play making quarterback who could give this MSU defense issues. We'll learn more about the Michigan State Spartans, considering they haven't really played anybody up to this point. With that said, we're getting free points with a Big Ten team against a Pac-12 team. Michigan State has an advantage in the trenches with its physicality, and its defense always rises to the occasion. I have a hard time trusting Pac-12 clubs against Big Ten or SEC teams. Give me Sparty and the points in a game, it could win outright.
