Well, the Spartans are in a skid and have now lost three in a row (this hasn’t happened since 2009), so they had better figure out what’s wrong, and do it soon or an already disappointing season could just get worse (especially with Michigan (#4) and Ohio State (#2) still to be played). Regardless, the Big Ten continues to have four teams in the top-25: Ohio State [#2], Michigan [#4], Wisconsin [#11], and Nebraska [#12].
Next up for the Spartans: at home against the Wildcats of Northwestern. Go Green!
