Michigan State football announces six kickoff times

MSU starts its season Friday night on ESPN; first home game slated for noon

NCAA Football: Northwestern at Michigan State Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

With 100 days left until Michigan State kicks off its season, some game time news has been dropped HOT on us.

Our Spartans will take on Northwestern on Friday night, Sept. 3 at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN to start Mel Tucker’s second season at the helm. IN CASE YOU FORGOT, the last time these two teams met, the Spartans toppled the No. 8-ranked Wildcats 29-20. History tells us when these two teams meet, the game (for better or worse) is a banger.

The first tailgate in East Lansing in 651 days will be an early one as the Spartans will take on Youngstown State at noon on Sept. 11.

The highly anticipated showdown at Miami (Florida) the following week will also be a noon kickoff.

MSU’s final non-conference game — against Western Kentucky — will go down at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 2 for what will surely be a fun tailgating evening.

The last two games with announced kickoff times are both slated for noon on the road against Rutgers (Oct. 9) and Indiana (Oct. 16).
