Noah Kim will be QB2 by the end of this season, and the starting QB in 2022. 2. King will not survive the Bama defense, paving the way for MSU'S 3rd straight victory.  3. Gameday will show up for the Michigan game. @SpartanJayJay - 9-3 with losses to Miami, Ohio State, and Indiana. A trip to the Outback Bowl on New Year's Day, 10 wins and a final ranking in the top 15.  #TuckComin @DastarLegend19 - MSU shocks the world and wins 10 games and they're a playoff contender #TUCKCOMIN @JohnnyMacSparty - Thorne is the starting QB, he throws for 3,000 yards and 25 TD’s. @lwbaker33 - We briefly crack the top 25 once this season due to the way our schedule lines up @LuthonS - It becomes a two headed backfield and Collins out touches Walker (barely).   Also Heyward finishes 3rd overall on the team in catches at TE.
