Michigan State struggled offensively throughout its season-opening win over Western Michigan last week.
It could have been a lot worse - just ask South Florida.
The Bulls were routed at home 53-21 by McNeese State of the Football Championship Subdivision. It was a sour way for South Florida to start new coach Willie Taggart's tenure, and now the Bulls travel to play Michigan State on Saturday.
South Florida went 3-9 last season, and the Bulls (0-1) are already off to a poor start this year. The Spartans (1-0) also have a lot to fix, especially on the offensive side of the ball. Michigan State beat Western Michigan 26-13 but scored only one offensive touchdown.
