The Wolverines have won 23 consecutive overall regular-season games, with their last defeat being a 37-33 setback at Michigan State on Oct. 30, 2021, and eight straight on the road. Each of their seven victories this year have been by 24 or more points, and they’ve scored at least 30 in each triumph to extend their streak to a school-record 10 games. Last week’s rout marked the third straight contest in which the team has produced a minimum of 45 points.

Quarterback J.J. McCarthy completed 14-of-17 pass attempts against Indiana for 222 yards and three touchdowns while going without an interception for the fourth straight time and sixth in seven games this season. The junior has been very accurate with his passes as he ranks second in the nation with a 78.2 completion percentage. Sophomore tight end Colston Loveland hauled in three passes for a career-high 80 yards versus the Hoosiers and had a TD reception for the second consecutive week to match his total from last season. See which team to pick here.

Why Michigan State can cover

The Spartans were encouraged by the play of quarterback Katin Houser, who made his first career start in last week’s 27-24 loss at Rutgers. The redshirt freshman had a hand in all three of Michigan State’s touchdowns, throwing for two while running for another. Houser led the team to its first opening-drive TD of the season in the setback as he connected with senior wide receiver Montorie Foster Jr. for a 13-yard touchdown midway through the first quarter.

Michigan State’s ground attack is led by Nate Carter, who has gained 529 yards on 113 carries. The redshirt sophomore, who is in his first season with the Spartans after spending two at UConn, is fourth in the Big Ten with an average of 88.2 rushing yards and has posted a career-high three 100-yard performances. Carter became the first Spartan to score three touchdowns in a quarter since Jehuu Caulcrick in 2007 when he accomplished the feat in the third quarter of the team’s 45-14 victory against Richmond on Sept. 9. See which team to pick here.
