Big Ten Football – Week 7 Predictions

Big Ten
Game of the Week
Michigan vs Michigan State
11AM - Spartan Stadium - ABC

Probably my favorite non-Iowa Big Ten rivalry plays this week.  No not the Big Game between Ohio State-Michigan, but rather Michigan vs Michigan State.  There always seems to be some classics that come out of these games.  These games are just fun to watch and this one should be no different.  Michigan is coming in unbeaten (again) but this time like I said last week, they some semblance of a defense.  Michigan State’s lone blemish is the loss to the desperate Irish in South Bend.  The winner is going to get control of the Big Ten Legends Division and looked upon as the leader in the clubhouse through 3 weeks of conference play.  To beat Sparty you need to shut down the run and run on them and control the lines.  They are missing Greg Jones in the middle of that defense.  As Denard Robinson goes, so goes the Michigan offense.  Make him beat you with his arm, because he WILL beat you with his legs.  This is going to be another slugfest and a great one that will come down to the 4th quarter and Michigan will end its 3 game skid to the Spartans.  WOLVERINES 31 – SPARTANS 20

Upset Alert
 – it’s the ‘Cats and Pat Fitzgerald seems to have the Hawks number, and the Hawks need to find an identity on offense and stop the run on D before they can be considered a threat to Michigan/Mich State/Neb for the Division Title.
