The Hilltoppers have had just one winning season since 2017. Western Kentucky also comes into this matchup after games against Army and Indiana (with a bye week between those two opponents). While the roster has more talent than Youngstown State, this is another game that is the definition of a buy game opponent and one the Spartans will need to handle to have a shot at bowl season.

It has been 496 days since Brian Lewerke last took a snap under center for the Michigan State Spartans. It has been even longer, 2,099 days, since he started his first fall camp as a freshman in East Lansing, though he would redshirt that season and play on the scout team while the Spartans went on to their third Big Ten title under then head coach Mark Dantonio, and earned a spot in the College Football Playoff.

Broscious is listed as the No. 13 player in Arizona and No. 43 guard overall in the 2022 class by 247Sports Composite rankings. He helped Desert Edge to an 8-1 record last season and was named first-team all-state. “As a player, I go into a game feeling like I’m the only one that could win the game for my team but then play as a team,” he said. “I feel like I need to be the meanest person out there. I need to have no remorse for anybody on the other team.”

Tucker learned how to chart out an unknown future during his time in the NFL amid the 2011 lockout, when he concocted a multitude of roadmaps dependent upon when football activities returned. Tucker and Michigan State have been enjoying some long-awaited normalcy, though, since the calendar flipped to 2021. The Spartans can finally move confidently in a straight line, from winter workouts to spring ball, now to a three-week break, and then right into the summer conditioning program.

Brian Lewerke is going to play at Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium after all. The former Michigan State quarterback never made it there — the home of the Big Ten Championship Game — with the Spartans, nor did he stick with the Indianapolis Colts after they invited him to a tryout last year. Lewerke will get that opportunity next month in The Spring League, where he’ll be playing for the Alphas, the league announced Monday.

A long and impressive streak is back in focus. Michigan State has had at least one player picked in the NFL draft 80 straight years, which trails only Michigan and USC – at 82 years each – for the longest run in the nation. That streak should be extended with a trio of Spartans eligible to be picked in the draft, which is Thursday through Saturday in Cleveland. However, there’s a good chance it will be the third day of the draft (rounds four through seven) before a Michigan State player comes off the board.
