Michigan State DC On Oregon: "They're No Better Than Us"

It was just two weeks ago that Oregon blasted Michigan State in Eugene, ripping off the game's final 28 points to win an all-important non-conference matchup. But Spartans defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi, filling in for his head coach Mark Dantonio on the team's weekly radio show, said that he doesn't think the Ducks are any better than his squad. According to, he also thinks MSU would fare well if they had played them the next day.

Narduzzi also mentioned that he's not sure if the Spartans were conditioned well enough for the high-paced Oregon attack.

Oregon certainly exposed MSU's highly-touted defense a bit, but it's important to remember that the game was in Eugene. It'd be interesting to see the two teams play on a neutral field - perhaps in the inaugural College Football Playoff?
