It was all about Carrie Underwood on Saturday at the Breslin Center. The country star’s “Blown Away” tour landed in East Lansing, and a few lucky Spartans got to meet and greet the star of the night.

Hockey coach Tom Anastos, men’s basketball coach Tom Izzo, football coach Mark Dantonio and AD Mark Hollis all posed for the photo above with Underwood.

Random thought: It’s weird to see Izzo, all 5-foot-9 of him, look down at someone. Then again, the legendary coach always surrounds himself with uberly long athletes and the 5-foot-3 Underwood makes most everyone she encounters look tall.
