Interesting bowl projections over at ESPN, with Mark Schlabach having MSU at the Insight Bowl vs Texas Tech and Bruce Feldman with the Big Green in the Alamo Bowl vs Kansas State; Adam Rittenberg also picks MSU in the Alamo Bowl vs the Big 12. This, of course, assumes a win over Purdue before our annual stint against Joe Pa.
USA Today's recent poll has Wisky up to #20, Iowa down to #15, Ohio State up to #8, and Joe Pa down to #17. Notre Dame got the axe, not even getting one vote after their loss to Navy. Can we say OVERRATED and the ES TOLD YOU SO.
