Week Eight Staff Game Predictions: Spartans vs Hoosiers

Michigan State looks to stay perfect and blow out the Hoosiers for the Old Brass Spittoon

"That 10 seconds could take you from just being on the team to people tweeting you and text messaging you saying, 'You're a legend; You're a hero.'"- Jalen Watts-Jackson

I think it's pretty safe to say we can quote famous Watts-Jackson quotes after that heroic game-saving touchdown was pulled off by a legend last Saturday in the not so "Big" House. Watts-Jackson recently said that in an interview with ESPN and has not only made a name for himself, but has also saved this Spartans season that has been full of close victories. Jackson exemplifies courage, perseverance, and the will to win, which are well needed by this team. This week Michigan State faces a very familiar face in East Lansing: the Indiana Hoosiers.

The Hoosiers are no strangers as they have been the Spartan's conference rival since the ‘20s, both playing for the Old Brass Spittoon. The trophy and bragging rights have been given to the Spartans 44 times to the Hoosiers gaining them 15 times. This year the Hoosiers are playing for more than the Spittoon, they have their record, pride, and destroying Michigan State's playoff hopes on the line. Look for the Hoosiers to try and break the high spirits of a tough Spartan team.

Once again our staff is back to a happy family after last weekend's split decisions. Everyone is back on the same page and has forgiven each other despite how the game went. Here are this week's predictions:
