About to get started at Spartan Stadium

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- The Michigan State students were here early, but it's a bit of a late-arriving crowd here at Spartan Stadium. Must be finishing off some of those tailgates.

The rain is staying away, but the wind could be a bigger factor. Game-time conditions call for cloudy skies, 48 degrees and winds gusting to more than 20 miles an hour.

Some depth-chart notes for Michigan State: Edwin Baker starts at running back, while Keith Nichol and Keshawn Martin start at receiver. Tyler Hoover and Denzel Drone are the starting rush ends, Blake Treadwell starts at nose tackle and Jon Misch starts at the "star" linebacker spot.

Sit back, relax and keep reading. Much more to come from Sparta.
