Michigan State's losing streak hit a new low last Saturday in a 44-10 loss to Michigan. The Spartans took an early 7-0 lead in the first quarter, then the Wolverines poured it on with no signs of showing mercy. Now, Michigan State's losing streak is at five games. And with the Spartans sitting at 4-6, there is zero room for error. If the Spartans want to play in a bowl game, they must win their final two games, starting with Saturday's matchup against the Scarlet Knights.
