Although Michigan State caught a break by drawing Indiana as its protected crossover opponent, the other two crossover opponents for 2011 and 2012, Ohio State and Wisconsin, are going to be extremely tough. What's more, there are two ridiculously tough stretches in each season. In 2011, for example, MSU opens the conference slate with games against Ohio State, Michigan, Wisconsin and Nebraska. In 2012, MSU has a stretch against Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin and Nebraska. This allows the end of the schedule to shape up with a couple easier games, but there's no doubt the Spartans will be tested in a big way early on in both seasons.
