Nico Collins and Other Wide Receivers Prepare For MSU Secondary

Coming into the 2018 battle between Michigan and Michigan State, the main focus has been how Michigan’s defense will do against the MSU offense, along with how MSU will be able to handle the quarterback play from Michigan’s own Shea Patterson.

It won’t be easy for the Spartans as they go up against the number two defense in college football and their secondary against Patterson could be in trouble, as they are ranked 117th in college football. That could mean Patterson might have a field day with his wide receivers.

“Their secondary is pretty decent,” said wide receiver Nico Collins. “They got some long, lanky guys, guys that can make plays, very competitive. This game is going to be a very competitive game, all four quarters, so let’s go out there and just play.”

Michigan State’s offense can make some plays in the passing game, as they have a better passing offense than Michigan, ranked 33rd compared to Michigan’s 93rd and the Collins and the other wide receivers have noticed how dangerous the Spartans passing offense can be.

“We talk about it a lot,” said Collins. “We watch film on them, see plays they’ve given up and we’re just going to use that and see if our plays work against them, and they will.”

Saturday, Oct. 20 will be a big day for both programs and the state of Michigan as the rivalry between Michigan and Michigan State heats up once again, with big implications as both teams are fighting for their Big Ten title hopes, while Michigan seems to also have a better shot that Michigan State at the National Championship title and they will be playing for that as well and you know MSU would love nothing more to hurt Michigan’s Big Ten title hopes AND National Championship title dreams.
