Minnesota vs Michigan State Week 4 Game Info

2022 NCAA College Football Game
Minnesota Golden Gophers (3-0, 0-0 Big Ten) vs. Michigan State Spartans (2-1, 0-0 Big Ten)
Date: Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022
Time: 3:30 p.m. ET
Venue: Spartan Stadium — East Lansing, MI
Coverage: BTN

Week 4 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a Big Ten showdown between the Minnesota Golden Gophers and Michigan State Spartans. It's been a perfect campaign for Minnesota so far, which was extended to 3-0 following a 49-7 win over Colorado last weekend.

Meanwhile, Michigan State couldn't get the job done against Washington, falling short 39-28. Considering how the Spartans were outscored 29-8 in the first half, it's clear that Mel Tucker's squad needs a more complete effort this week.

Minnesota enters this contest as the favorite on the spread. This 3:30 p.m. ET clash also features a total of 50.5, which is on the average side compared to the rest of this week's college football projected totals.

Minnesota vs Michigan State Prediction & Pick

It's fairly shocking to see Minnesota as the road favorite here. After all, the Golden Gophers have lost five straight games against the Spartans, with the latest loss — a 30-27 final score — taking place in 2017. Keeping that in mind, I expect that Michigan State will get the win on Saturday.

The truth is that the Golden Gophers haven't been tested much, if at all, this season. While the Spartans didn't get the win last week, they at least looked good in the second half against a Huskies team that's now ranked No. 18 in the nation. With this being Minnesota's first challenge of the year, I'm counting on Michigan State to bounce back.

Final Score Prediction: Michigan State: 28 | Minnesota: 23

As mentioned before, Minnesota hasn't been tested by a team like Michigan State yet in 2022. The Spartans won't roll over like the Golden Gopher's other opponents. Even though Minnesota is 6-0 straight up in its last six games, the team hasn't won on the road against Michigan State since 2009.

I like the odds of Michigan State pulling off an upset here.

Bet: Michigan State ML (+112)
