Michigan State Spartans V Indiana Hoosiers: Preview, Start Time, TV, Radio


The Spartans (4-1) host a very confident Indiana Hoosier (3-2) team in East Lansing. on October 12th. The Indiana Hoosiers are fresh off a blow-out upset of the Penn State Nittany Lions where they put up 42 points at home.  The turbo charged big play Indiana offense should be a good test for the elite Michigan State defense.

Elite defense or not if you can’t score you can’t win so this game will depend on Michigan State’s ability to score touchdowns.  The Spartans seem to have found some offensive consistency after strong performance at Iowa by quarterback Connor Cook.  Cook is developing into the leader the Spartans were looking for during most of the non-conference schedule. The key to the Spartans offensive success is ball control and balance.  If they can do those things it should be a good day for Sparty.

Indiana is coming into spartan Stadium upset minded.  The Hoosier will try to be aggressive and get some big plays early to put pressure on Connor Cook and the Spartan offense.
