Spartans Keys To Victory

Here are a few "KEY" things Michigan State must do on Saturday to beat Central Michigan.

Here are our keys to Saturday's game against Central Michigan.

COME OUT STRONG There is no better way to get out of feeling bad then to come out strong against CMU. The Spartans are expected to win and need to do so in a strong fashion.

PRESURE THE QUARTERBACK The front four of Michigan State's defensive should be able to put pressure on the quarterback. If they struggle there should be some concern with the Big Ten opener a week away.

OFFENSIVE LINE MUST START STRONG With major changes along the offensive line from a week ago. The Spartans must come out strong and make few mistakes.

POUND THE ROCK The Spartans are a power running team what never got started last week. This week the Spartans should be able to pick up 150-yards on the ground at least.

DO NOT LOOK AHEAD TO Ohio State Next Saturday will find the Spartans in Ohio Stadium in front of 100,000 fans. However, they cannot look ahead to next week or risk an embarrassing outcome against CMU.
