One thing is true at Michigan State under new coach Mel Tucker: The Spartans have been a dangerous underdog.
Michigan State has only two victories this season, but both were against ranked teams when the opponent had been favored by double digits. Another chance looms this weekend when the Spartans are scheduled to host No. 3 Ohio State.
The Buckeyes canceled their game last weekend against Illinois because of COVID-19 cases. They have resumed full practices in preparation for Michigan State.
