After trouncing Iowa on the road a week ago, Michigan State is just two wins away from winning the Legends Division and punching at ticket to the first annual Big Ten title game. The Spartans control their own destiny in the division and could actually clinch it as early as Saturday if they beat Indiana and Michigan beats Nebraska.
Perhaps the best news of all for the Spartans is that their toughest tests are in the rear-view mirror. Michigan State made it through a ridiculous October with wins over Ohio State, Michigan and Wisconsin and only a loss to Nebraska. So far in November, MSU has defeated Minnesota and Iowa and hasn't suffered any losses. All that stands between the Spartans and a 7-1 conference record are Indiana and Northwestern.
The Hoosiers will be in East Lansing on Saturday for Michigan State's senior day. Indiana is the worst team in the Big Ten and one of the worst teams in the nation. The Hoosiers have a 1-9 overall record and a 0-6 record in the Big Ten. Although they did manage to stay within two touchdowns against Ohio State a couple weeks ago, Saturday should be a cakewalk for Michigan State.
Saturday's game is set for a noon kickoff on the Big Ten Network.
