ES sez: Looking to a great game in the cold rain. Bring your poncho. Should be a defensive battle. MSU figures the defense will pick it up a notch and will force some turnovers. Look for 100+ total yards (ground and receiving) out of Bell... Besides, I hate the Ugly Chickens. Note: Sims is out at TE, and Treadwell is tentative on the OL. MSU 17, Iowa 13.
