East Lansing, MI – Michigan State returns to East Lansing after traveling for two weeks straight. 

They end the road trip 1-1, beating Michigan and losing to Iowa, but are now hoping to capture MSU's first home win of the season and Mel Tucker's first victory inside Spartan Stadium. 

Following a 49-7 beatdown courtesy of the Hawkeyes, MSU went back to basics. 

And regardless of the outcome, with Tucker leading the way, there's no time to harp on the past. 

Michigan State will look for its fourth-consecutive win over Indiana as they are set to kickoff against a Hoosier team ranked inside the top-10, something they haven't accomplished for five decades.

But Tucker isn't backing down; no, he can't wait to compete against the best the Big Ten has to offer.
