PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- In the words of head coach Mark Dantonio, No. 16 Michigan State has a chance to "flip it" when it meets Rutgers in the regular-season finale for both teams on Saturday at High Point Solutions Stadium.
With a win, the Spartans (8-3, 6-2 Big Ten) would mean a record reversal from last season, when Michigan State finished 3-9.
"It's rewarding to flip it," Dantonio said.
"Right now, we've flipped 3-8 to 8-3. It's rewarding to see that, to see there's something that all your hard work comes to fruition and all the things you talk about and go through as a group, you see that sort of move forward. I think that's exciting for any program at any point in time.
"The expectations are there. Our players believed that they can flip this back. It's been 10 weeks since our bye week, so we've been going at it for 10 straight weeks, sort of grinding. But I think our football team is ready to play its final game. We're looking forward to it." << Read more
