The Michigan State Spartans football team will play a home-and-home with the Oregon Ducks in 2014 and 2015, according to Michigan State Athletic Director Mark Hollis.

Oregon finished fifth in the final BCS standings last season, while Michigan State ranked 17th. Since Mark Dantonio took over in 2006, Michigan State has compiled a 44-21 record. In 2010, Dantonio led Michigan State to a share of the Big Ten Championship with a 7-1 record-- the Spartans first Big Ten Championship in over 20 years.
Based on their improvement on the field, Michigan State has scheduled some tough non-conference opponents in the upcoming seasons. Via Hollis:
