Michigan State-Georgia: Are the Spartans Ready for the Capital One Bowl?

Luke ChampionContributor IDecember 30, 2008

Michigan State came back this season with a 9-3 season and now is playing Thursday for the Capital One Bowl versus Georgia.

Michigan State lost their first game to California 21-28. They won all their games except when Ohio State came in the picture. They lost an embarrassing game 45-7.

Then they won three more games until it came to their last game against Penn State. Now Penn State lost their game before Michigan State against Iowa by a last second field goal winner, which gave Penn State their only loss. After coming from a bad loss from Iowa, Penn State came ready for the Spartans. They got blown away at the Nittany Lions' home stadium, 49-18.

Now the question is, "Is Michigan State ready for Georgia?"

I think they are. Michigan State has only won two out of their eight bowl games. I think they are going to come out focused and ready to win. Georgia has been to and won many of their bowl games and know what it is like.

Michigan State has many seniors, which include Javon Ringer, Brian Hoyer, and Otis Wiley. Those seniors are not going to let their last game go to waste, especially when it's the Capital One Bowl.

If Michigan State wants to beat Georgia, they're going to have to work really hard. Georgia has a strong team and experience. But Michigan State has determination and heart.

With some hard-hitting defense, and some fast and accurate offense, I think that the Spartans will come out on top, but it will be close. Michigan State Spartans 37, Georgia Bulldogs 34.

This game will not be easy for the Michigan State Spartans, but neither will it for the Georgia Bulldogs. These teams are almost equal in stats. They have the same record too. But only one can come home a victor.
