Outback Bowl 2012: Michigan State Preparing For Isaiah Crowell

Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi said on Tuesday that he would be shocked if his defense didn't have to face Georgia Bulldogs running back Isaiah Crowell when the two teams face off on New Years Day in the Outback Bowl.

Narduzzi said he'd be shocked if Crowell isn't the RB for Georgia in Outback Bowl. 9 hours ago via web · powered by @socialditto

Crowell is Georgia's top rusher, accumulating 847 rushing yards and five touchdowns throughout his freshman season. He was named the South East Conferences Freshman of the Year in 2011 despite being benched in the team's Oct. 15 game against Vanderbilt and missing the team's Nov. 5 game against New Mexico State for allegedly failing a drug test.

Rumors circulated that Crowell was going to seek a transfer from Georgia but he denied the rumors saying that he is happy in Georgia.

Crowell has averaged 4.7 yards per carry in 2011 and the Spartans' fifth-ranked defense will likely have its hands full.
