No. 11 Michigan State is off to its best start since going 8-0 in 2015. The Spartans will look for their sixth straight win when they face Rutgers at SHI Stadium on Saturday. The Scarlet Knights are on a two-game losing streak after dropping games to now No. 7 Ohio State and now No. 9 Michigan. The game also will have a revenge motive. Rutgers spoiled Mel Tucker’s debut as the Spartans’ coach last season with a 38-27 win in East Lansing, Michigan. Rutgers forced seven turnovers in giving Greg Schiano a win to start his second stint as coach.
