IMO, the deciding factor in today's game was the Defensive Line of MSU. MSU typically controlled the line of scrimmage when we had the ball.
MSU has one of the better Dlines that we will see all year, however, quite a few teams left on our schedule also have good Dlines - if not as good as MSUs.
What can we do to mitigate a good Dline?
More shotgun, more option, more protection int backfield?
