Welcome to episode No. 108 of the On The Banks podcast. In this week’s episode, we preview the matchup between No. 11 Michigan State and Rutgers this Saturday at SHI Stadium. It’s slated for a 12:00 p.m. ET kickoff and airing live on the Big Ten Network.

Our guests for this episode are Matt Sheehan, host of the Locked On Spartans podcast and contributor for SB Nation’s Michigan State site The Only Colors, as well as our own longtime contributor David Anderson.

Topics covered with David include takeaways from the loss to Ohio State, depth concerns, the coaching staff’s tendency for risk taking, how Rutgers matches up with Michigan State, season outlook and much more.

Topics covered with Matt include the Spartans 5-0 start, their improved quarterback play, key factors for MSU in all three phases of the game, his game prediction and much more.

And of course, we talked about the perspective from both sides on Mel Tucker’s insistence on the use of “Keep Chopping” despite it being a core mantra for Greg Schiano and RU.

We also review all of the fall sports at the top of the episode.

Thanks to David and Matt for giving insightful breakdowns on both teams ahead of Saturday’s matchup. And thanks for listening once again.
