This Michigan State Rose Bowl Preview Trailer Is Spartaaa!

Friday December 13th, 2013

This fan-made trailer previewing Michigan State's first Rose Bowl appearance in 25 years is packed with enough testosterone to garner a 50-game suspension from Major League Baseball.

Cleverly drawing from the movie 300, the video celebrates a Spartans squad that -- similar to the ancient Spartans (although to a somewhat lesser extent) -- excelled in an underdog role this season, going undefeated in the Big Ten after being picked to finish third in their own division.

It's a fitting tribute to what many believe will be a classic slugfest in Pasadena on New Years Day.
