My guess is MSU will throw a lot of different looks at Robinson to try to throw him off his game, and I won't be surprised at all to see MSU run a 3-4 defense for a lot of the game. Robinson is going to get his yards and his points, the key is going to try to keep him from busting the big plays. Keep a Spy on him, jam the box and force him to throw the ball. MSU doesn't have the best defense by any stretch of the imagination, but it's better than anything UM has faced so far. Robinson is much better passer than he was last year, but I think MSU's best shot will be to make him throw the ball.
Offensively MSU needs to control the clock. Keep Robinson off the field and UM's crappy defense on the field. More drives like that 9 minute one against Wisconsin would be perfect. Let Cousins throw 5-8 yard passes all the way down the field.
I can't wait for tomorrow
