Michigan State Football vs. Western Kentucky
Return to the stake.
Following a victory over Nebraska in the spotlight at Spartan Stadium last week, the Michigan State No.17 will host a prime-time opponent on Saturday night when they host Western Kentucky in East Lansing.
For the undefeated Spartans (4-0, 2-0 Big Ten), it’s a bit of a buffer game. Their last two clashes were on the road in Miami, Fla. And at home against an opponent from the Big Ten. Before diving headfirst into the rest of its conference schedule, MSU will have a Conference USA opponent in town to sort things out before things get real.
At least that’s the plan. The Hilltoppers (1-2) gave Indiana a helping hand last weekend, losing 33-31, lost to Army by a fielding the week before, and will now take their third straight chance by scoring an upheaval.
