Dec. 16 vs. Oakland Golden Grizzlies (at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit)Predicting the champion for every one of college basketball's 32 conferences--CBS Sports
Oakland always seems to play Michigan State tough — remember that overtime battle two years ago when the Spartans were ranked No. 1? The Golden Grizzlies are again solid but a 43-point loss at Kansas earlier this year suggests this one should be a convincing win for the Spartans.
Dec. 29 vs. Cleveland State Vikings
Rutgers held the Vikings to only 38 points earlier this year. Can this stout Michigan State defense hold them to even fewer points? Another blowout win for Sparty.

Oakland has finished on the wrong side of some lopsided games this season, but the Grizzlies have the roster to win the Horizon by a mile. Kendrick Nunn, Martez Walker and Jalen Hayes are three of the league's top talents and all three are capable of pouring in 25 points on any given night.

-NORTHERN KENTUCKY AT EAST TENNESSEE STATE. NKU has a very small margin for error, but I don’t think it’s entirely outside the realm of possibility for them to land inside the bubble. It’s near the realm of possibility, but not entirely outside of it.
