Michigan State hoping there isn't much red in Spartan Stadium on Saturday

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

Michigan State is hoping for a good home crowd on Saturday against Nebraska.

Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio is hoping not to see a sea of red on Saturday when the Spartans host Nebraska at home at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Dantonio was the defensive backs coach under Nick Saban when Nebraska last visited East Lansing, Mich. on Sept. 9, 1995 and remembers seeing a plethora of folks in red in the stadium.

Although Michigan State has sold over 60,000 tickets for the game, the tendency for Nebraska fans to travel and the listing of available tickets on secondary websites is a concern for Michigan State, according to Joe Rexrode of the Detroit Free Press.

Dantonio addressed his concerns regarding attendance at his weekly press conference while Michigan State running back Le'Veon Bell urged fans to have a "white out" on his Twitter account earlier in the week.

Athletic director Mark Hollis said he would be disappointed if Michigan State fans were selling their tickets.

Michigan State has lost consecutive games at home to Iowa and Ohio State and have opened the season with a 2-3 home record overall.
