It’s almost time for Week 5 of the college football season.
No. 9 Michigan State is favored by more than four touchdowns for the second straight week, though Mark Dantonio is expecting Wyoming to provide a better test than Eastern Michigan did last weekend.
There are only 32 NFL starting quarterback jobs in the world. Four of those are currently occupied by former Michigan State Spartans.
Coach Mark Dantonio was happy that Michigan State smashed Eastern Michigan 73-14 on Saturday but he was even happier with his team’s approach after a high-profile loss at Oregon and a long week off.
The 11th-ranked Spartans are favored by more than 40 points against Eastern Michigan on Saturday, so complacency is certainly a possibility.
The Big Ten announced its 2014-15 men’s basketball conference games to be televised by CBS Sports or an ESPN network on Thursday.
“Our guys need to come ready to play,” Dantonio said. “If there’s a message out of this press conference, that would be the message.”
Michigan State Athletics Department officials reported 61,931 football season tickets have been sold for the 2014 season – the second-highest total in school history.

The Spartans’ defense is capable of crowding the line of scrimmage and forcing Oregon QB Marcus Mariota to try to beat them with passes deep.
