Currently on a win streak comprising of teams like the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, the Iowa Hawkeyes, the Florida Gators, the Green Bay Phoenix, and the Oakland Golden Grizzlies most recently (a 99-69 win).

The MSU team is scoring an average of 87.6 points per game as against the 81.6 points per game of their opponents this matchup, the Northern Illinois Huskies.
