How Does Michigan State Offense Rank In The Big Ten And Country?

Michigan State's offense has been improved so far through week four.

So far, Michigan State has been firing on all cylinders outside of a struggling second half last Saturday, against Nebraska.

With the improved production I was curious how it stacked up compared to the rest of the Big Ten and country.
