Week 1 MSU & Michigan Picks
It’s finally here.
College football is upon us and there may not be a state with more interest in the next two days than
Here are my picks for the weekend.
This game has so many question marks coming into it. How good is Andrew Maxwell? Is the MSU defense as good as advertised? How will
recover from losing so many starters? Boise State
I know the Broncos look depleted, but their program has been strong for many years now because of their ability to recruit and develop talent. I have no doubt that
should be very talented
when it steps on the field tonight. The big concern of the Broncos is that they
lack experience. There could be some miscues that will play right into the
Spartans’ hands. Boise
I expect the game to be close most of the way, but look for MSU to make some plays on both sides of the ball toward the end of the game to get the big victory.
Prediction: MSU 21,
17 Boise State
dominate this game for months, and while I still do expect the Crimson Tide to
win handily, I think Michigan
has a better shot than I originally felt.
I look for
to get a big play in the first half to keep the game close, but ultimately I
see the Wolverines struggling to move the ball consistently without Fitzgerald
Toussaint (who I expect not to play).
Michigan defense should
be able to have some success, but over the course of the game, the size and
strength of the Alabama
offensive line will win out.
