what to know

The Minnesota Golden Gophers have enjoyed the comforts of home in their last three games, but now they must go on the road. The Golden Gophers and Michigan State Spartans will square off in a Big Ten battle at 3:30 pm ET on Saturday at Spartan Stadium. Minnesota should still be feeling good after a win, while MSU will be looking to regain their footing.

Minnesota ran circles around the Colorado Buffaloes last week, and the extra yards (500 yards to 227 yards) paid off. Minnesota outscored Colorado 49-7 at home. The game was practically decided halfway through, when the score had already reached 35-nil. RB Mohamed Ibrahim had an explosive game for the Golden Gophers; he rushed for three TDs and 202 yards on 23 carries.

Meanwhile, the Spartans fell short against the Washington Huskies last week, falling 39-28. MSU was down 36-14 late in the third quarter, which was too much to recover from. Despite the loss, they got a solid performance from WR Keon Coleman, who caught nine passes for two TDs and 116 yards. Coleman had some trouble finding his footing against the Akron Zips two weeks ago, so this was a step in the right direction.

This upcoming matchup is expected to be a close one, with the Golden Gophers coming out as just 3-point favorites. They’ve been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (2-0), so it might be worth a quick bet.

Minnesota’s victory brought them to 3-0 while the Spartans’ loss brought them to 2-1. A couple of defensive stats to note: Minnesota has yet to allow a rushing touchdown this season. As for MSU, they enter the contest with 12 sacks, good for seventh-best in the nation.
