Heisman HYPE Game of the Week #2
#7 Oregon at #5 Michigan State
Last year, this matchup featured eventual Heisman winner Marcus Mariota putting up 318 yards passing and 3 touchdowns against a solid Spartan defense. It was also Michigan State’s only loss outside of Ohio State. This year, both teams are led by quarterbacks with Heisman aspirations as Vernon Adams has taken over under center for the Ducks and Connor Cook returns as the Spartans’ signal caller. Beyond potential Heisman implications, this game could be influential either (or both) of these teams making it into this year’s College Football Playoff.
