Now it is a year later and the Spartan wide receivers are seen not as a weakness, but as a strength...
Repeating as conference champions is a feat that few teams are able to accomplish. Wisconsin was able to get to three straight Rose Bowls prior to 2013, but had it not been for sanctions against Ohio State and Penn State the Badgers wouldn’t have been able to keep that streak alive.
Between the division realignment and an overall tougher schedule, Michigan State is facing an uphill...
