Good evening Spartan Nation and Big Ten fans!
My name is Brittany McCormick and I will be your student reporter for the Michigan State stop on the Big Ten Mobile Tour. The Stagg-Paterno Trophy could not be stopping at our campus on a more beautiful, fall weekend. We have sunny skies, warm weather (rare for this time in Michigan) and midterms are wrapping up. While some of our sports, such as field hockey and women's soccer, are on the road competing in Big Ten Tournaments, we have plenty of Spartan events happening on campus.
The defending Big Ten Women's Basketball Champions take on Lake Superior State in its first exhibition game on Thursday at 7 p.m. The men's basketball team also plays in an exhibition game against Hillsdale at 7 p.m. on Friday. And of course, the main reason why the trophy is here, the No. 15 MSU football team takes on Minnesota in a Legends division match up on Saturday at noon.
The Stagg-Paterno trophy will be at all of those events including two staple buildings on MSU's campus, the MSU Union and the Brody cafeteria.
I'm very excited to document the championship trophy's journey around the campus of Michigan State and to show the other members of the Big Ten what it means to be a Spartan. And this is where I need your help Spartan Nation! Tweet us your answers (@B1gMobileTour) on what it means to you to be a Spartan and we will retweet them or even post some right here on the blog.
I'm looking forward to getting the tour started up. See you at the MSU Union tomorrow! GO GREEN!
