Coming off an 11–2 season that ended with a Cotton Bowl victory and top-five finish in the Associated Press poll, Michigan State will begin its 2015 campaign on Sept. 4 at Western Michigan.

The Spartans’ first big game of the season comes in Week 2, when they will host Oregon during a primetime matchup of the No. 6 and No. 5 teams in the preseason Amway Coaches Poll, respectively.

In Big Ten play, Michigan State will face a series of difficult road contests at Michigan, Nebraska and Ohio State before closing out the season by hosting Penn State in East Lansing.
