Michigan State remained undefeated with a 31-13 win at Rutgers. The MSU defense was solid in bouncing back after allowing 31 points to Western Kentucky in the previous game (Oct. 2). The Spartans held the Scarlet Knights to just 3.1 rushing yards per carry and a 5-of-19 performance on third and fourth downs. With players like DE
Jacub Panasiuk (18 tackles, 4.5 sacks, 1 forced fumble) leading the way, Michigan State has allowed just 19.7 points per game to rank 27th in the country.
The Hoosiers are coming off a bye week, which followed a 24-0 loss to now-No. 8 Penn State Oct. 2. IU’s schedule has been tough as the other conference loss was to Iowa. That one was a 34-6 setback Sept. 4, so Indiana has scored just 6 points through eight quarters of Big Ten play. IU’s struggling offense – ranked 107th FBS in total yards – figures to get better the rest of the season. A big key will be the status of the QB
Michael Penix, Jr., who left IU’s last game with a separated shoulder. It’s unknown if he will play Saturday.
