The plays that went Michigan State's way during its 11-game win streak flipped allegiance.

Middle linebacker Max Bullough knew what Denicos Allen and Taiwan Jones were thinking to his right or left because he was transmitting information to them telepathically. Bullough and Allen are gone, so the completely revamped linebacking unit will undergo especially close scrutiny.
