Don’t miss any of the action in Michigan State’s 2017 opener against Bowling Green


Michigan State starts the 2017 season Saturday in the comfort of Spartan Stadium with 75,000 cheering fans watching live as MSU takes on Bowling Green.

The Spartans are expected to be in rebuilding mode this year with a roster full of young and raw talent. But with that talent comes plenty of unknown and intrigue. MSU hopes it has its quarterback in place along with a running back likely on his way to the NFL and two young players to watch at receiver. On defense it’s a lot of the same with a depth chart full of new names.

On paper, the Spartans opponent Saturday looks pretty similar. A young team, coming off of a bad year, looking for a rebound. But Bowling Green is not without talent, specifically at wide receiver. The Falcons should be improved on their 2016 season, but even keeping the game within one score would be a small surprise.

Wherever Michigan State finds itself in December, it all starts Saturday.
