The Michigan State Spartans are set to face off against the Penn State Nittany Lions in their final game of the regular season. If they are able to win this game, there is a good chance that they will face off against the Iowa Hawkeyes in the Big Ten championship game this season.
Mark Dantonio has to be proud of the way that his team has persevered through the rough season following the Nebraska loss.
Knocking off Ohio State last week is exactly what could get them the Big Ten championship chance. It is far from a guarantee that they would beat Iowa, but they do match up well with them.
Beating Penn State cannot be overlooked or taken for granted by any stretch of the imagination. It is the definition of a trap game and the Spartans have to take it seriously like they are playing Ohio State once again. Penn State’s season would be made if they can knock off the Spartans and put them out of playoff contention in the final game of the year.
Michigan State has released a hype video for their game against Penn State and Dantonio shared it on his personal Twitter account.
