Michigan State vs. Western Michigan Predictions

Despite being only 80 miles apart, this is just the tenth meeting between the two with Michigan State going 9-0, including a 16-7 fight in 1918. As good as the Broncos might be, they’re about to hit a brick wall in a Spartan defense that should camp out in the backfield. Will Western Michigan have the pass rush to bother MSU quarterback Connor Cook? Nope.
