Michigan State junior forward Branden Dawson out 4-5 weeks with a broken hand

That changes things for the game this Saturday. With Appling and Payne banged up but will play. I never wish injury on anybody and I rather have Michigan beat MSU on full strength.
Also, there's a curse of #3 ranking for B1G teams. OSU and Wisconsin haven't won since then and MSU had trouble with Indiana a few days ago. Do B1G team really want the #3 ranking?
