A condensed Spartan Red Zone panel of Zachary Swiecicki, Kyle Turk and special guest Tino Abarca made SRZ history — for the first time ever bringing you immediate analysis and reaction from a makeshift studio within the depths of Ryan Field in Evanston. Then No. 16-ranked Michigan State lost to Northwestern, 39-31 in three overtimes. MSU dropped their first conference game of the season, but still control their own destiny with Big Ten East opponents PSU and OSU in the next two weeks. Zach and Kyle break down what happened on Saturday evening. Was the play from Brian Lewerke a glimpse at his potential? How many points did the Spartans actually leave off the board? How was Justin Jackson able to beat the Spartan defense? The group also discusses where, or if, MSU could be ranked in the first College Football Playoff rankings coming out on Tuesday.
Now No. 24-ranked Michigan State (6-2, 4-1 B1G) hosts No. 7 Penn State (7-1, 4-1) on Saturday, Nov. 4 at 12 p.m. in East Lansing on FOX.
