Michigan State Spartans
Location: East Lansing, MI
Coach: Mark Dantonio (100-45) 13th Season
Stadium: Spartan Stadium (Capacity: 75,005)
5th: Big Ten (3rd East Division)
19th: Division I
2017 In A Sentence: A stunning turnaround for Mark Dantonio and his team, rebounding from a 3-9 season to go 9-3 and earn a Holiday Bowl invite against Washington State. Best of all, he did so with a young team.
Biggest Shoes to Fill: There are so many returning players, but OL Brian Allen is one all-conference player that is not. A second-team all-Big 10 selection, the offensive line is one area where Dantonio will need to find some players.
