What you should know

The Minnesota Golden Gophers have enjoyed the comforts of home for the past three games, but now they must hit the streets. The Golden Gophers and Michigan State Spartans will go head-to-head in a Big Ten bout on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET at Spartan Stadium. Minnesota should still be feeling good after a win while MSU will look to regain their footing.

Minnesota ran circles around the Colorado Buffaloes last week, and the extra yardage (500 yards versus 227 yards) paid off. Minnesota rolled past Colorado 49-7 at home. The game was pretty much decided at halftime when the score had already reached 35 to nothing. RB Mohamed Ibrahim had a dynamite game for the Golden Gophers; He rushed for three TDs and 202 yards with 23 carries.

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

This next matchup is expected to be tight as the Golden Gophers walk away with only a 3-point favorite. They were consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (2-0) so could be worth a quick bet.

Minnesota’s win brought them down to 3-0, while the Spartans’ loss dropped to 2-1. A few defensive stats to keep an eye on: Minnesota has yet to concede a quick touchdown this season. As for MSU, they enter the contest with 12 sacks, good for sixth best in the nation.
