The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Week 8: IU vs. MSU

Hoosier fans have gotten a taste of what life may be like for the rest of the 2014 football season without the services of quarterback Nate Sudfeld on Saturday afternoon.

It is homecoming this weekend in Bloomington and the leaves are changing. The Spartans of Michigan State come to town as the sixth ranked team in the nation and will face off the 3-3 Hoosiers for the Old Brass Spittoon.
