  • Rittenberg picks a 26-20 Sparty win "in a trap game."
  • CFN/Scout picks a 26-13 Spartan victory: "Illinois has to be perfect, and it won’t be."
  • picks MSU as its most pleasant surprise so far of 2010.
  • Meanwhile, Rivals lists both Joel Foreman and Greg Jones on its mid-season All-America team.
  • Who's Hot? CFN/Scout has MSU as #2: "It’s beginning to look like one of those special seasons in East Lansing that occur once every generation."
  • Zook wants to "spoil another homecoming" according to the Chicago Trib.
  • The Boston Herald has an interesting aside on Brady wearing the Spartan t-shirt after losing his bet to Brian Hoyer. You want to see the shirt? Here.
