EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) – Michigan State University officials have delayed a celebration for the school’s Rose Bowl-winning football team because of a major snowstorm and polar temperatures in the forecast.

The Detroit Free Press reported on Saturday that athletic director Mark Hollis said the celebration planned for Monday will be rescheduled to an undetermined date. Meanwhile, the East Lansing university will honor the team during Tuesday’s home basketball game against Ohio State.

The No. 4 Spartans beat No. 5 Stanford 24-20 Wednesday. The team returned Thursday night, and the school sponsored a rally at the Skandalaris Football Center.

As of late Saturday night, the National Weather Service said most of southeast Michigan received at least a half-foot of snow. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. Sunday.
