Michigan State Football 19-16 Over Maryland Terrapins Official Game Thread

The Michigan State Spartan Football disastrous 2019 season will thankfully come to a regular-season end today. The Spartans look to get to 6-6 so they become bowl eligible for the 12th time in Mark Dantonio’s 13 seasons at Michigan State. A loss would make it only the second time in the Dantonio tenure (2016) that they failed to make a bowl.
The Terrapins are depleted by a less than stellar roster and have played with as many as four different QB’s this season. While the Terrapins certainly are in the midst of a rebuilding time, the Spartans should be on cruise control in Dantonio’s 13th season.
With a win, the Spartans will probably spend the bowl season not on a sandy beach, but in the Motor City. The Quick Lane Bowl is played on December 26, 2019, at 8 PM ET at Ford Field in Detroit. That game can be seen on ESPN.
