You don’t have to beat the fact into the mind of Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio that the game between his No. 7 Spartans and No. 3 Oregon Ducks this weekend is huge.
“It’s an exciting week for us this week,” Dantonio said. “A lot of things that you are going to experience this week whether as a coach or as a player, these are things that you anticipate...
Before Friday's season opener between the Michigan State and Jacksonville State the Gamecocks had to know they were going to be hurting a little more than usual on Saturday.

Kurtis Drummond has been a starter at safety in the Spartan “No Fly Zone” for the past two seasons. To date, Kurtis has racked up 156 tackles and 8 interceptions.
In 2013, the safety was a first team All-Big Ten selection as well as an All-American honorable mention. Drummond will be returning to the Spartans for his senior season in 2014.
I don’t always get excited about interceptions, but when I do, it’s for plays like the one Michigan State safety Kurtis Drummond made in the first quarter of Friday night’s game against Western Michigan—this come’s after the safety scores a touchdown off of a Jairus Jones pick.

Michigan State cornerback Kurtis Drummond wasted no time in submitting his candidate for this season’s defensive play of the year in college football. Drummond, a junior for the Spartans, made this brilliant one-handed pick in the first quarter of MSU’s opener against Western Michigan.
Oh, and Drummond had already scored a defensive touchdown for Michigan State after receiving...
It hasn’t been the greatest start the season for Michigan State’s offense, but their defense is proving it early that they are one of the best in the nation. Even when it looks like they are out of position, they can make a play. Kurtis Drummond already had a pick-6 earlier in the game when he made one of the most impressive interceptions we will probably see all year. Check...
