Michigan State vs. Georgetown in basketball? Yes please. MSU vs. Georgetown in Madison Square Garden, say it ain’t so? MSU vs. Georgetown in basketball, at MSG, and on Super Bowl weekend, all together? WOW.  

That may be hard for some to believe but according to a report that’s exactly what is on tap for this season as NYC hosts it’s first ever Super Bowl.

You knew the city that never sleeps was going to do it up bigger and badder than ever before, right?

Well, MSU vs. Georgetown is just one of three games taking place on the same day at the World’s Most Famous Arena as the report is also indicated fans can take in a Big East matchup between Marquette and St. John’s and the piece de resistance… the Miami Heat vs. the Knicks.

I don’t know about you, but that may be a more entertaining (and helluva a lot cheaper) event to take in than the Super Bowl itself.

Michigan State, which annually challenges itself pretty well in the non-conference slate is apparently ready to do so again this season as they now have games against Kentucky, North Carolina, and Texas on the docket, as well as being a participant in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic in Brooklyn, NY in late November.

No doubt about it, coach Tom Izzo and his willingness to play anyone and just about anywhere strikes again.
