PREVIEW: MSU football looks to snap losing skid, upset #2 Michigan

EAST LANSING – Michigan State is desperate for a win after starting the season 2-0, then losing four consecutive games. The Spartans will have another crack at getting back in the win column against Michigan tonight. Recapturing the Paul Bunyan Trophy would be just what the program needs in the midst of a season that’s slipping away week by week. 

Taking care of the ball needs to be on the front of the Spartans’ minds after committing 12 turnovers in the last three games. Quarterback Katin Houser, who saw his first career start last week in Piscataway, has the tall task of facing the smothering Wolverine defense. Houser completed 18 of 29 passes for 133 yards and two touchdowns in the 27-24 loss to Rutgers.
