The Cougars and Spartans both need a win to get going in the right direction. This season hasn't gone exactly to plan for either BYU or Michigan State. The Spartans opened the year ranked No. 12 in the country and considered a top-flight Big Ten East contender along with Ohio State and Michigan, but now they've started 2-2. The Cougars entered with a new head coach, Kalani Sitake, and a seemingly strong chance at joining an expanding Big 12.
