Aside from the unbeaten Ohio State Buckeyes, the most impressive team in the Big Ten this year has absolutely been the Michigan State Spartans. We’ll get a chance to find out next week who the best in the conference really is when these two square off for the crown, but first, the Spartans have one more test in the form of the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
If not for a loss to Notre Dame earlier this season, we could be talking about Michigan State potentially being a contender for the national title, but I’m sure that folks in East Lansing are still happy with this team’s performance this year, overall. They’ve displayed on of the more stifling defensive units in the country, and everyone is looking forward to that showdown with the Buckeyes next Saturday.
But, the team themselves might not want to overlook what has been a very good Minnesota team this season. The Gophers were on a four-game winning streak before falling to another impressive Big Ten team last week, the Wisconsin Badgers.
