The serious previews for Saturday's big game are rolling in, with SB Nation rolling out all the stops today. We have Pete's preview here, a look at the four most anticipated battles here and a retrospective on the Michigan State-Oregon series here.
A lot of the talk leading up to Saturday has been about how MSU handles adversity, which is something the Spartans will undoubtedly have to deal with. There's the heat -- although, the Ducks aren't entirely used to that either -- the travel, the noise at Autzen, and oh yeah, Marcus Mariota and one of the best offenses in the country. Win or lose, Saturday will certainly be a learning experience.
Speaking of adversity and distractions...
There's a lot to this story, including the report of benefits to a former Duck.
"But I’m not worried about our players being intimidated, if that’s what you’re asking."
You're not alone, Tako.
"Explosion plays" scare me.
It's better than the BCS, but the playoff is still about to create some serious controversy.
I had no idea what this was about based on the headline.
Still on that recruiting grind.
@KegsnEggs, er, I mean Adam Kramer is a gentleman and a scholar.
