Google is telling me that there's a 30-60% chance of rain just before kickoff and during the game. How do you think this will impact the game?
State's apparent strength on defense is the DL against the run. The counterpoint is that State hasn't faced a really good rushing team. On offense, however, State dinked/dunked their way to a win against Penn State while their run game continued to suffer; passing seemed to be a big part of their success in that game. Overall, I'd say it's a wash, but I really think it depends on Michigan's interior DL health, especially after a bruising opponent like Wisconsin.
