2020 Michigan State Spartans Football Preview

2019 Scoring Offense: 22.4 
2019 Scoring Defense:  22.5 

2019 Offensive Rank: 104
2019 Defensive Rank: 36

Offense: If you were wondering how the Spartans fell so quickly from annual Big 10 contender to solid middle of the conference look no further.  To say the Sparty offense was average would be giving credit.  There are a batch of good young RBs, but there are no standouts at WR.  And no idea who will be under center.  22 points a  game might look good in 2020.

Defense:  This unit was as good as advertized last year, though the deficencies helped hide that fact.  Much of that unit is gone, so don't expect a normal Spartans D this year.

Overall: Sparty will continue to sink.  There isn't a single game on the schedule before the end of November that the Spartans will be comfortable favorites in.

Projected 2020 Record: 4-8
