Big Ten links: Chris Laviano to start, Spartans eye revenge & much more

This time last week, Chris Laviano was suspended for the first half of the season-opener for a team violation. Now, he’s Rutgers’ starting QB after Hayden Rettig got the nod last week. Laviano hit 4-of-4 passes for 138 yards and three TDs. Not bad. Rettig was pretty good, too, completing 9-of-11 for 110 yard with a TD. “I think the coaches made a great decision with that,” Rutgers running back Paul James said Monday. “Chris is a great player and I think he’s a great leader.

Here are five things to watch tonight: 1. Quarterback. Finally,

Dienhart: Spartans win, but need to 'reach higher' going forward

The Spartans did need to reach too high—too high–to beat Western Michigan tonight, taking a 37-24 win. The best way to describe the victory: methodical. Michigan State can play better. And, it must—and will. The Spartans will need to with Oregon coming to East Lansing next week for a prime-time tilt with potential playoff implications. This game vs. Western Michigan—not overly impressive for the Spartans–was about kicking the
