MSU a 12 point underdog at Oregon

Yes, it is history the #8 Michigan State Spartans face this weekend... not the 45-7 throttling of Jacksonville State on Friday night, but rather the longer history of Oregon as among the nation's elite.  The  bookies make MSU an early 12 point underdog at #3 Oregon.  MSU has been throttled at Autzen Stadium the past two meetings... and while the Big Green bring its vaunted defense, it has much to prove in the loudest setting in the nation for the Spartans to arrive on the national stage.

MSU at Oregon (-12)
Iowa (-17) vs. Ball State
Northwestern (-5) vs. Northern Illinois
Purdue (-3) vs CMU Fire Up Chips!
