The Spartans victory over Kansas in the Champions Classic on Tuesday night could the precursor of the good things to come for the university this week as the Spartan football prepares to play the first-place Ohio State Buckeyes in the game in the Big 10. This is the marquee game both teams have pointed to all year. It’s all there for the Spartans who control their own destiny. In the immortal words of Al Davis, “just win, baby”.
Start of something good The Spartans were fired up about their victory, but they were also hoping it would be the beginning of a special week.“It’s kind of a start of a big week for Michigan State,” Izzo said. “If you’re a Spartan fan you know our football team is going down to Ohio State and hopefully we are leading the way for a phenomenal week for the Spartans.”No. 9 Michigan State plays No. 2 Ohio State in football on Saturday, a game that likely will send the winner to the Big Ten championship game.That matchup was on the minds of some of the basketball players, including Costello, who is roommates with junior tight end Josiah Price.“This is a little momentum and we got Ohio State this week, so Michigan State is gonna be happy. It’s gonna be hopping on campus.”
