Michigan State Spring Game Scheduled For Saturday

Coming off back-to-back 11-win seasons, there isn't much drama this spring in the world of MSU football.

Sure, there are some holes to fill, but a fanbase that has so often braced itself for letdowns is getting used to having one of the top programs in the Big Ten. MSU's spring camp concludes Saturday with the annual spring game. Every year under head coach Mark Dantonio, the players have drafted two separate teams to compete, with the winner earning a nice dinner. From The Only Colors, here is a look and breakdown of each team for Saturday.

The biggest note for Saturday is that projected starting quarterback Andrew Maxwell will not play in the game after spraining his right knee in practice last week. MSU is keeping him out as a precaution. You never want something serious to happen in a scrimmage. In Maxwell's place will be redshirt freshman Connor Cook, who will be playing for both the Green and White teams.

Some things to watch for include how the receivers look. Along with replacing its starting quarterback, MSU is replacing most of its receiving from last year. MSU had one of the top defenses in the nation last year, and that is expected to continue. How Cook looks with the young receivers might be the most interesting storyline for the game.

The forecast shows temperatures in the 40s with a decent chance of rain, which seems to be the forecast for this game every year.

Date/Time: Saturday, April 28, 1 p.m. ET

Where: Spartan Stadium, East Lansing, MI

TV: Big Ten Network

Radio: Spartan Sports Network
