The Michigan State Spartans meet the Penn State Nittany Lions on Saturday for the Land Grant Trophy in week 13 Big Ten college football action from Spartan Stadium.

The Penn State Nittany Lions come into this one after their 28-0 win over Rutgers in their last game. Sean Clifford has thrown for 2,599 yards, 17 touchdowns and 6 interceptions on 61.9% passing while Keyvone Lee has 416 rushing yards and Noah Cain has 322 rushing yards as well this season. Jahan Dotson leads Penn State in receiving with 1,045 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns while Parker Washington has 662 receiving yards and KeAndre Lambert-Smith has 426 receiving yards as well this season. On defense, Ellis Brooks has a team-high 91 total tackles while Arnold Ebiketie has a team-high 9.5 sacks as well this season.

The Michigan State Spartans will try to answer the call after a 56-7 rout at the hands of Ohio State in their last game. Payton Thorne has thrown for 2,618 yards, 22 touchdowns and 8 picks on 60.5% passing while Kenneth Walker III has 1,498 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns on the ground this season. Jayden Reed leads the Spartans with 857 receiving yards with 7 TDs while Jalen Nailor has 587 receiving yards and6 scores. Tre Mosley also has 463 receiving yards as well this season. On defense, Xavier Henderson leads the Spartans with 89 total tackles along with 3 sacks while Jeff Pietrowski and Jacub Panasiuk each have 5.5 sacks.

Penn State is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 conference games while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall. Michigan State is 3-0-2 ATS in their last 5 home games and 7-2-2 ATS in their last 11 games overall while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 home games.

I’m still trying to understand this line a bit. The Spartans have had the much better season so far and are going through senior day at home in this one. Sure, the Nittany Lions don’t have the pressure of the moment, but these Spartans will want to put their best foot forward with a lot of them done with the program after this. Give me Michigan State at home here.
