Mark Dantonio and the Michigan State Spartans are set to open up their 2015 season against the Western Michigan Broncos on Sept. 4. They are expected to be contenders to win the Big Ten, while fighting for a spot in the College Football Playoff.
It is going to be a very promising season and more excitement is being drummed up with the “Reach Higher” hype video that has been released.
There aren’t many teams that are better on paper than the Spartans, especially with quarterback Connor Cook back for his senior season. He is one of the top signal -allers in the nation and is expected to have a monstrous season.
Outside of Cook, the Spartans have quite a few playmakers around him offensively. They also have put together a very dangerous defense full of players that can make an impact.
Dantonio has every reason to be excited about the season and the fan base should be more thrilled for this season than they have been in quite some time.
Expect to see them live up to their potential and be one of the best teams in college football this season. Whether or not they can beat out the Ohio State Buckeyes in the Big Ten is another question, but they certainly have a chance.
