V-Cast: Are the Spartans ready for Big Ten play?

EAST LANSING - Michigan State throttled an overmatched Central Michigan team in a final non-conference tune-up before Big Ten play starts this week.

The Spartans limited Central Michigan to 112 yards of total offense and picked off Central Michigan quarterbacks four times in the 45-7 victory.

Michigan State also generated 484 yards of total offense including 197 net rushing yards against the Chippewas.

The Spartans put up big numbers despite an off day from fifth-year senior quarterback Kirk Cousins who was 13-of-22 for 213 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

The win puts Michigan State at 3-1 on the season heading into the Big Ten opener at Columbus.

But are the Spartans ready?

SpartamMag.com staffers Jim Comparoni and Paul Konyndyk try to answer that question in the latest V-Cast.
