The Michigan State Spartans are ready to go to battle with all of
the best teams in the NCAA football world this season. The Spartans have a collection of talent that could very well take
this team to the top of the national rankings. Michigan State is coming off a fine 2013 season in which they lost just a single
game the whole season and were able to go undefeated against their conference rivals. The Spartans are a part of the Big Ten
Conference, one of the oldest and most respected football conferences in the college game. The Spartans have their work cut
out for them in 2014 if they want to finish atop the standings yet again, but this team is certainly capable of making it
happen. With a bevy of tough matchups at home this season, the Spartans will have to bring their best early and often in 2014
to put together another dominant campaign on the field.

on Oct. 4, when it will be Nebraska-Michigan State in East Lansing for a huge game against Big 10 rivals. The Huskers always
seem to have some of the top players in the country, and as a Big Ten rival they pose a real threat to Michigan State's dominance
over the competition in the conference. Michigan State will be faced with another difficult matchup on Oct. 25 when the Michigan
Wolverines come to town, as the in-state rivalry will certainly be one of the most anticipated games of the season. Other
huge home games include Michigan State-Ohio State on Nov. 8 and a tough game against Rutgers on Nov. 22, giving fans plenty
of other major options for anyone looking for action.
Don't miss the biggest road games of the season, however, as Michigan
State also has plenty of huge away matchups, like a Sept. 6 matchup against PAC-12 powerhouse Oregon, Oct. 11 against Purdue,
Maryland on Nov. 15 and Penn State on Nov. 29. There are few better experiences than seeing a rivalry game in person, and
