For MSU to win:
- Must be able to keep the game in front of them.Â The defensive backfield cannot let the game get past them and avoid giving up the big play.
- Pressure on Quinn
- Take what the ND defense gives them.Â What I mean is that if ND decides to stop the run (which is where I think they will go due to the weather) then they must move the ball in the air.Â If you remember Minnesota came in here 2 years ago in weather worse then this and passed so I am not worried.
For ND to win:
- Attack Stanton and not let him dictate the game.
- Must establish the pass.
- Avoid letting MSU get the â€œmomentumâ€ plays.
MSU will be able to run the ball and mix in the pass.Â They will not let Notre Dame get the momentum and MSU will win another great game 31-28!
