What To Watch For

1. Indiana's running game. Dan Feeney and Dimitric Camiel were both no-shows in pregame warmups, according to Mike Miller. With Michigan State missing two starting linebackers, Riley Bullough and Jon Reschke, it'll be interesting to see how the Hoosiers running attack, now in its second week without the right side of its line, stacks up against the Spartans stout defense.

2. Richard Lagow's start. After throwing five interceptions that were the difference in the game against Wake Forest a week ago, Richard Lagow could use a fast start. He's favored Westbrook and Paige early this season and will probably target them in the early going.

3. Camion Patrick. Last week, the highly touted offensive weapon suited up for the first time but had little to no impact against Wake Forest. Is this the week that Kevin Wilson unleashes him?
