The Michigan State Spartans will look to improve to 3-1 as they face the Wyoming Cowboys, who recovered from an Oregon beatdown with a win over Florida Atlantic.
No. 9 Michigan State recovered from a loss to No. 2 Oregon and demolished Eastern Michigan, 73-14 to climb back into the top 10 and likely the national title picture.
The Spartans received limited action from quarterback Connor Cook due to the blowout, but he made his time count with 83 passing yards and two touchdowns on 5-of-6 passing.
Running back Jeremy Langford added 60 rushing yards and a touchdown on nine carries, and wide receiver Tony Lippett caught three passes for 45 yards and two touchdowns.
The Spartans may be whistling the same tune against Wyoming, who was blown out by Oregon, 48-14. However, they recovered last week with a 20-19 victory over Florida Atlantic.
Running back Shaun Wick led the way for the Cowboys as he rushed for 111 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries, and D.J. May added another 71 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries.
Their defense will face a major test from the Spartans offense, which ranks sixth in the country with 48.3 points per game scored.
The Spartans’ firepower will ultimately be too much for the Cowboys, and they are still looking to climb back into the national title picture.
Prediction: Michigan State 42, Wyoming 17
