Thoughts: The Hoosiers are coming off a win over Purdue while Michigan State defeated Nebraska in their last outing. Both these teams are tied atop the Big Ten and a win here could really go far in determining who wins the Big Ten (regular season) Championship. I like MSU to win a close one here so I’d take them to cover.
