Rushing yards: 11th (261.0)
PPG: 39th (34.0)

Key Players:

RB; Edwin Baker #4. The sophomore from Highland Park, Michigan has well played in his first two games this year rushing for 117 yards against Western Michigan and 183 yards against Florida Atlantic. He has already topped his TD total from a year ago with 3 TD's. Baker only rushed for a total of 427 yards last year on 85 carries with only 1 TD. It's hard to tell how well Baker actually is because he has yet to face a marginal run defense has FAU has let up 570 rushing yards in 2 games and Western Michigan has only played Nicholls State other than MSU. Look for MSU to give Baker his carries this weekend has he is the key for them this weekend.

LB; Greg Jones #53. He was the 2009 Big Ten defensive player of the year and by no surprise 2010 pre season Big Ten defensive player of the year. Not to mention he was also a 2009 consensus first team All-American. Jones recorded a total of 153 tackles last year, 66 solo along with 9 sacks. This year he has 20 tackles and already 2 forced fumbles.

Prediction: Irish 28-17
