Washington vs Michigan State Preview

The Huskies are fresh from a 43-10 trouncing of Tulsa last weekend. Washington quarterback Michael Penix Jr. had another excellent performance, going 28-38 for 409 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. Washington put up 563 total yards of offense in the victory.

The Huskies are looking solid on defense, as well, giving up an average of 14.5 points a game.

On the other side, Michigan State is in the middle of a much-publicized scandal. Former head coach Mel Tucker has been suspended indefinitely without pay after being accused of sexually harassing a rape survivor. Spartans secondary coach Harlon Barnett will serve as acting head coach with Tucker out.

The Spartans are coming off a 45-14 win over Richmond last week. Michigan State QB Noah Kim went 18-22 for 292 yards and three touchdowns in a solid performance, while running back Nathan Carter racked up 111 yards and three scores on 19 carries.

Heading into this one, one team is going to leave with its first loss of the year, and Washington coach Kalen DeBoer says his squad won’t be focusing on any of the drama happening on the other side.

“It might come up but I really am feeling like you don’t make a big deal of it because it’s going to be about the 100-plus guys that they have on their team that are wanting to do something special,” DeBoer said about the scandal surrounding Tucker. “They’re going to be playing at home trying to go 3-0 in an environment as I’ve heard a couple times now today is hostile. It’s going to be an awesome atmosphere.”

“Our job as a staff is to focus on our guys and get them ready and prepared for the game on Saturday,” Barnett said heading into the game. “They’ve been focused. They’re locked in. They know the challenge that’s ahead of us with Penix. He’s a really good football player…We know the challenge that is before us. We’re looking forward to the challenge, and can’t wait for Saturday.”

UW leads the all-time series, 3-1. These two squads faced off last season, with the Huskies beating the Spartans, 39-28.
