BTN Tour: Michigan State Football Preview

BTN Tour: Michigan State Football Preview

Dave Revsine, Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith visited Michigan State practice on our BTN Football Tour this August. The Spartans, fresh off a share of their first Big Ten title since 1990, are eying the program’s first back-to-back 10-win seasons. It’s a realistic goal, considering Michigan State returns QB Kirk Cousins and, arguably, the Big Ten’s best set of skill players. Lineman Jerel Worthy and a big-play secondary give Michigan State a formidable defense. The Spartans open the season Sept. 2 against Youngstown State. Watch all of our Michigan State Preview video inside.

Kirk Cousins has become the poster boy for Big Ten football players, if not the nation, following his successful season and stirring speech at the Big Ten Kickoff Luncheon. Watch Cousins discuss that said speech below.

Which Spartans do Coach and Howard think Big Ten fans should look out for in 2011? Find out below.

Defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi faces the challenge of replacing two great linebackers, in Greg Jones and Eric Gordon. How’s the defense adjusting to losing two of its leaders?
