Michigan State goes for its eighth consecutive win against Indiana in the battle for the Old Brass Spittoon. The Spartans have not lost to the Hoosiers since Mark Dantonio became Michigan State’s head coach in 2007, including a 52-26 win last season in East Lansing.
Michigan State fell to 2-1 on the season after losing its Big Ten opener against Wisconsin last Saturday, 30-6. The loss also dropped the Spartans to No. 17 in the AP Top 25 poll. This will be the first Big Ten game for Indiana (2-1), which lost 33-28 at home against Wake Forest last weekend. The unranked Hoosiers last year went to the program’s first bowl game appearance since 2007 and have the Big Ten’s No. 1 pass offense.
