“First of all, Connor has got a huge upside. He’s played on a big stage. He was the Rose Bowl MVP when he was a sophomore. He was the MVP in the Big 10 Championship Game, just things of that nature,” Spartans coach Mark Dantonio told NFL Network on Wednesday. “He’s been in the spotlight. I know it’s an elevated level of play and it’s all relative, but he’s played on a big stage and he’s had a lot of anxiety, big-game jitters, and things like that, and he’s played very well in those games. That’s going to serve him as well as anything as he takes this opportunity and has an opportunity to play this weekend.”
