After this win against the Penn State Nittany Lions, should we consider the Michigan State Spartans a threat in the Big Ten – East against the Michigan Wolverines or the Ohio State Buckeyes? In both upcoming match ups, the Spartans have the slight advantage with it being in East Lansing, Michigan, but then again the Spartans did lose to the Northwestern Wildcats. If I’m a Spartan fan I’m keeping my hopes alive that this same team shows up the way they did against the Nittany Lions.

I tuned in to majority of the Spartans versus Nittany Lions game, but when it came down to the last 2 minutes I turned, however, little did I know that the Spartans would get the ball back and score within the last 19 seconds of the game. I immediately tuned back in, once I noticed the highlighted scores while watching another game.
It is hard to consider the Nittany Lions to be a contender now with losses against Big Ten – East contenders the Buckeyes, and the Spartans, which were both home game losses. The Nittany Lions are a great team, but not good enough to match up against a top playoff potential contender.
