The Michigan State Spartans will be going for their third consecutive win when they face the Miami Hurricanes on Saturday afternoon. The Spartans are coming off a 42-14 win over Youngstown State as 28-point favorites. The Hurricanes are coming off a 25-23 win over Appalachian State as 7.5-point favorites.
Spartans Going For UpsetThe Spartans are off to a perfect start this season after winning their first two games. They will try to keep the momentum going with a win over the Hurricanes, which will give them their third win in a row and their first win over a ranked team this season.
Michigan State is averaging 40 points per game. They scored 42 points in their last game, throwing for 323 yards and rushing for 272 yards in the win.
Payton Thorne completed 15 of 21 passes for 280 yards and four touchdowns. Jordon Simmons had 16 carries for 121 yards, while Jayden Reed had four catches for 181 yards and two touchdowns.
Michigan State has done a good job defensively, giving up 17.5 points per game. They gave up 14 points in their last game and will need another solid defensive effort if they want to get the win.
Hurricanes Going For Second Consecutive WinThe Hurricanes bounced back from their opening day loss to Alabama with a lackluster win over Appalachian State in their last game. They will try to put on a better performance against a dangerous Spartans team as they go for their second consecutive win.
