Michigan State and Connecticut have agreed to hold their November 9 game at a U.S. military base in Germany, reports ESPN.com's Andy Katz.

The Spartans and Huskies will play at Ramstein Air Base, the home of the U.S. Air Forces in Europe, if granted formal approval by the Department of Defense, which Katz reports has been part of negotiations with ESPN.

"I asked my players if they wanted to do it, and they were jacked,'' Michigan State coach Tom Izzo told Katz. "Has a college team ever played a regular-season game in Europe? I don't think so. It will be cool. We're going to a base in another country. That's pretty cool.''

The Spartans played North Carolina on an aircraft carrier last fall to kick off the season.
