Iowa v Michigan State

The Michigan State Spartans will take on the Iowa Hawkeyes tomorrow at Kinnick Stadium. The Spartans are looking for their fourth consecutive victory over the Hawkeyes, which would be an all-time record for MSU in the series that dates back to 1953. The Hawkeyes have the narrow edge in the series, but the Spartans can even it up in the 48th meeting of the two programs tomorrow. It will also be a homecoming of sorts for starting quarterback Rocky Lombardi who is from Clive, Iowa which is just under two hours to the west of Kinnick Stadium, outside of Des Moines.
