Steele's B1G Bowl Projections Too Optimistic

Created on Jul. 06, 2013 4:26 PM EST

Outback Bowl: Michigan State vs. Florida

Steele has the Spartans having a resurgent year, but there's no offense in East Lansing. 

The defense shoud be at the top of the conference, but without scoring, MSU won't beat Notre Dame, Michigan, Nebraska or Northwestern. And if it loses to Indiana at home Oct. 12, the season is a catasrophe. 

Either way, it's going to take nine wins to be in the Big Ten's top four and I don't see it happening. More likely, the Spartans will be down in the BWW Bowl.
