Michigan State Spartans

vs

Indiana Hoosiers
Saturday, October 18, 2014 3:30 PM ET
Memorial Stadium

 

The Michigan State Spartans will be gunning for their sixth straight victory over Indiana when they take on the Hoosiers at Memorial Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The 5-1 Spartans travel to Bloomington riding a four-game winning streak, but have failed to cover in their last two outings.

The 3-3 Hoosiers have alternated between wins and losses all season, and are coming off a 45-29 loss to Iowa as 3.5-point underdogs in Week 7. However, they will need to buck recent trends in head-to-head meetings to pull off a win against the Spartans after losing by double digits in four of their last five matchups, including a pair of outright losses as favorites.
