Michigan State has to throw to win. Brian Lewerke is guaranteed to throw at least one interception, but he’s been solid, hitting 60% of his passes and throwing for over 200 yards in every game but the win over Central Michigan.
Michigan doesn’t let anyone throw.
The run defense is good, but it can be pushed a bit. For all of Wisconsin’s issues last week in the 38-13 loss, Jonathan Taylor still passed 100 yards. But Alex Hornibrook was awful, failing to complete a pass over the second and third quarters, and finishing with 100 yards for the game.
The Wolverine pass D is the best in the nation, giving up over 200 yards to SMU along with three scores – no one else has passed for more than 175 yards and the only other touchdown passes allowed came on a minor miracle Brandon Wimbush throw against Notre Dame and a garbage time late play by Hornibrook.
