Five must-reads before kick-off:

* Jayden Reed’s season has been derailed by, of all things, a metal bench. The Spartans’ star wide receiver collided with one during the Akron game and suffered a large back injury. He is still working to get back into shape after the freak injury.

* Elijah Collins was Michigan State’s standout running back in 2019. After injuries and a slew of drafted transfers kept him off the field for much of the past two years, he finally made it back into the rotation. And despite all that, he said he never considered transferring.

* The newest strategy to fix Michigan State’s ailing pass defense involved turning to real freshman Jaden Mangham to start against Maryland. The Michigan native performed well, but he has a much bigger test this week.

* CJ Stroud tore apart Michigan State’s defense last season, going 32-of-35 for 432 yards and six touchdowns. He returned this year with another group of talented receivers and, as Mel Tucker puts it, “the easy bus ain’t coming.”

* Matt Wenzel has his five weekly things to watch, and one of those things stands out above the rest.
