In the second week of bowl games, there is a game between two ranked opponents. These teams are the Michigan State Spartans and the Washington State Cougars. Both teams had above average expectations this season but managed to exceed those expectations by winning nine games and by qualifying for a respectable bowl game. Now, both teams will look to prove that they are truly a top 15 team in college football by winning this bowl game.
Michigan State’s success is due to sophomore quarterback Brian Lewerke. This season, Lewerke has thrown for 17 touchdowns and only seven interceptions along with 2,508 yards. Lewerke is also averaging 4.5 yards per carry and has over 480 yards rushing along with five rushing touchdowns. Assisting Lewerke is running back LJ Scott who had 788 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns this season. Expect Lewerke and Scott to contribute a lot in the ground game as the Spartans will attempt to out-physical this Washington State defense.
Leading the Washington State offense is senior quarterback Luke Falk. Falk is one of those quarterbacks who has had insane statistics in his college career but never received the national recognition that he deserved. Last season, Falk threw for 38 touchdowns along with over 4,400 yards. Falk is an extremely accurate quarterback and has always boasted a high completion percentage as a result. This season, Falk continued to be extremely accurate and threw for 30 passing touchdowns along with over 3,500 passing yards. If the Cougars plan on winning this contest, expect Falk to have a huge game through the air.
As for my prediction, I have to side with Michigan State. Although Falk is a great quarterback, I think that Washington State’s offense is extremely one-dimensional due to its inability to run the ball consistently. Michigan State has a better defense and a more balanced offense which I think will lead the Spartans to a victory in this bowl game.
