The Wolverines have won their first four games of the season, including a 28-10 victory against Purdue, but will be without starting quarterback Wilton Speight, who suffered a neck injury against the Boilermakers, and John O’Korn hopes to rise to the occasion by leading Michigan to back-to-back wins against the Spartans for the first time since 2006-07. O’Korn was able to get the win last week against a Purdue team on the rise, but handling Michigan State might be a different type of challenge.
Wide receiver Felton Davis was named the Big Ten’s Co-Offensive Player of the Week after hauling in a career-high nine passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns in the win over Iowa. Brian Lewerke threw for 212 yards and two touchdowns to go along with another 42 on the ground to take his season total to 248 rushing yards, which is second best among Big Ten quarterbacks.
Michigan State will be able to game plan for the erstwhile backup but Michigan will likely tailor their playbook to better fit O’Korn’s style. He’s more athletic and mobile than Speight, so the Wolverines could look to more roll out passes and designed quarterback runs to keep the defense on their toes.
