The Michigan State Spartans are loaded with talent once again, and with quarterback Connor Cook returning the team has the look of a legitimate contender to reach the College Football Playoff.
But before the team can prove that on the field during the regular season, they will need to suit up for the annual Green-White spring game this weekend.
For the game, all players will have a patch on their jerseys that represents the overwhelming success the program has had in the last two seasons.
The Michigan State football team sent out a tweet revealing the patches on Monday.
Michigan State’s patch shows off their Rose Bowl and Cotton Bowl wins from 2014 and 2015, respectively, while highlighting the impressive 24-3 record that Mark Dantonio’s program has had.
It’s safe to say the Spartans have had a good run.
If they want to continue that success this season and want to finally get over the hump, they will need to find a way to knock off the defending national champion Ohio State Buckeyes to become the kings of the Big Ten.
The annual Green-White game is scheduled to kick off at 2:07 PM ET on Saturday.
