Michigan State’s season has gone from bad to worse to unfathomable with Saturday’s fourth-quarter collapse against Illinois.

After entering the game as nearly a two-touchdown favorite, Michigan State dominated the first three quarters of action. Unfortunately, it all unraveled with a 27-3 run by the Illini over the final 15 minutes.

The loss dropped Michigan State to 4-5 with just three games left on the season. At this point, there’s plenty of blame to go around.

For much of the year, another dismal offensive season has been the storyline. In particular, the Spartans scored 17 points total in the month of October while going 0-3 against ranked opponents.

Though the offense has been bad, it should be noted that the defense has had its fair share of poor performances. The Spartans have allowed 28+ points in five straight games and 30+ points in four of those games.

The only question now is whether or not Michigan State will even get a bowl game at the end of the season. ESPN’s FPI recently updated the odds for the final three games, and it looks like the Spartans will probably be going for a sixth win in the final game of the season. When it comes to Saturday’s in-state rivalry with Michigan, that game could look pretty ugly.

Here’s how the FPI is predicting the final three games:

  • Nov. 16 @ Michigan – 15.8%
  • Nov. 23 @ Rutgers – 94.6%
  • Nov. 30 vs Maryland – 87.5%
