2014 Michigan State Spartans Schedule - Green vs Green Showdown

Michigan State is pushing the elite. Last season Mark Dantonio’s group took down undefeated Ohio State and Pac 12 Champion Stanford in finishing 13-1 and #3 in the country. This season the Spartans meet a much different Pac 12 foe, showing up in Eugene, Oregon in Week 2 to take on the always speedy, ever flashy and often contending Oregon Ducks. Win, lose or get embarrassed, the Spartans still have a Big Ten season to play. The November 8th visit by Ohio State may be compromised by the absence of Braxton Miller, but the Buckeyes will have time to break-in young Redshirt Freshman JT Barrett and surround him with the highest recruited talent in the conference. While most focus on those two prime time affairs, could Michigan State get tripped up in a Big Ten season that excludes Wisconsin and Iowa? MarkRogersTV addresses Sparty’s Duck Challenge and, more importantly, how the new Big Ten division format sets up for a return trip to Indianapolis
