Michigan State hasn’t been great this year. They’ve failed to win more games than they’ve lost and currently sit at 2-5. Crazy things happen in rivalry games, though. With the Spartans playing their in-state rival Michigan today, one has to wonder if they can pull of the huge upset and beat the Wolverines.
When asked what percent chance the Spartans have of knocking off the No. 2 ranked Wolverines, his answer was underwhelming. “Zero percent,” said Herbstreit. He went on to site Michigan’s dominance on both sides of the ball this season and doesn’t think Michigan State can sustain the rivalry juice and ride the wave to a victory.
After scoring on their opening drive, Michigan State promptly gave up a touchdown on the ensuing drive and currently trail the Wolverines 14-10. That touchdown to open the game may be the only lead the Spartans have all game.
