EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - For all that Michigan State's defense has proven over the last year or so, this may be the most compelling test yet.

After routing Jacksonville State to open the season Friday night, the eighth-ranked Spartans are heading west to face No. 3 Oregon. The Ducks' dynamic, fast-paced offense should pose quite a challenge for Michigan State, but the defending Big Ten champions are an upbeat bunch after Friday's 45-7 victory.

There's no reason for Michigan State (1-0) to be intimidated by the significance of this next game. This is a team that went unbeaten in the Big Ten last season and beat Stanford in the Rose Bowl.

But Oregon's offense, and the mystique surrounding it, makes this an unusually fascinating contest.
