DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” is our top pick for watching WMU vs. MSU live from Spartan Stadium because the platform carries all the channels you need to watch both team’s full 2022 seasons, as well as Bally Sports Detroit for watching in-market Detroit Tigers, Red Wings, and Pistons regular season games. DIRECTV STREAM also carries WJBK FOX 2 Detroit for watching Aidan Hutchinson and the Detroit Lions.

wmu vs. msu: what we’re watching

Michigan State struggled in the defensive backfield in the 2022 season. We will be watching the Spartan cornerbacks to gauge speed and effectiveness against the passing game, even against a MAC opponent they are heavily favored to beat. WMU isn’t known as a prolific passing offense, so if MSU gives up more than 200 yards through the air, it could be a long season for MSU against their rivals.
