Long-time Big Ten Conference rivals will clash in East Lansing this weekend, as the 12th-ranked Michigan State Spartans play host to the Indiana Hoosiers.
Kevin Wilson's first season as head coach at Indiana has been tough to endure, as his team has lost nine of its 10 games. While the first four defeats all came by seven or fewer points, the last five have been by 14 or more. The Hoosiers have been idle since a 34-20 loss to Ohio State back on November 5, the seventh consecutive defeat for the program.
As for Michigan State, it is 8-2 overall and 5-1 in Big Ten Conference play, good for sole possession of first place in the Legends Division. Last weekend, the Spartans captured their second consecutive victory with a 37-21 decision over Iowa on the road, and Mark Dantonio's club can clinch a berth in the inaugural Big Ten title tilt with a win this weekend and next over Northwestern.
