Michigan State quietly puts itself in position for New Years Six bowl game

The Michigan State Spartans have played two huge games on the national stage, taking on Oregon and Ohio State while both were top 15 teams. Unfortunately, the Spartans got smoked when the clock read 0:00. So, it’s easy to see why there hasn’t been much talk about MSU since it’s Nov. 8 loss to Ohio State. At that point, Michigan State’s hopes for postseason play appeared shot...

WATCH: Michigan State Runs End Around With 325-Pound Guard Connor Kruse

This is the second questionable play of the day for the Michigan State Spartans the first being a fake field goal when they were already up 35-0.
