Michigan State returns to the friendly confines of Spartan Stadium to face Minnesota.
The Golden Gophers are in the offensive cellar of the Big Ten in scoring, total yards and passing. They are No. 11 in rushing.
The Spartan defense is probably primed for a big game, but it is the MSU offense that must rediscover its identity and put some major points on the scoreboard if the team is going to surge toward a Legends Division title.

What did Purdue do wrong?
Last week they traveled to "The Big House" and got trampled by the Michigan Wolverines, who are battling for the Legends Division title. This week, the Boilermakers face No. 20 Wisconsin in Camp Randall Stadium.
You think the stadium in Ann Arbor is something? Wait until you see a sea of red and white Badger fans bouncing around and making noise on Wisconsin's home field.
After two heart-rendering defeats on the road, I expect Wisconsin to explode on offense and put up numbers reminiscent of the first five weeks of the season.
Wisconsin 56, Purdue 14
When running back Daniel Herron (pictured) returned to the Buckeyes, it jump-started their offense.
Ohio State is playing, well, like Ohio State should play football. They are pounding the ball on the ground thanks to Herron, which frees up the passing options for freshman quarterback Braxton Miller.
The Buckeye defense is deep in talent and has been great in their last two conference games.
The Buckeyes seem to be the best prepared Leaders Division contender. Indiana should be thankful that Ohio State prefers to run the ball rather than perform an aerial show like Northwestern did in week 9.
