East Lansing, MI – Michigan State returns to action this weekend against Northwestern, searching for redemption following two bad losses to Iowa and Indiana.

The Spartans didn't travel to Maryland due to a COVID-19 outbreak, but they did take advantage of the bye week.

"We came back Friday with a walk-through focused on Northwestern," Mel Tucker said. "Then we came in Saturday and had a spiders practice which is basically shorts and helmets – it had a Northwestern emphasis … Sunday was a mandatory day, but it was more of a recovery day."

Today, Spartan Nation publisher Hondo S. Carpenter, Sr., and deputy editor McLain Moberg discuss the state of MSU football, plus a little basketball.  

As of now, it's difficult to see a path to victory this weekend for the Spartans, especially with such a talented Wildcat defense and a not so good MSU offense. 

However, Tucker is right where we expected him to be thanks to a late retirement by Mark Dantonio, he was immediately placed behind the eight-ball, and it's showing on the field.
