·2 min read

It’s officially bowl season for Michigan State football, with the Spartans set to go bowling again this year. And it should be a pretty big game for Michigan State too.

The official bowl game announcements will come out on Sunday, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start looking ahead to what the experts are projecting for Michigan State.

Here is where the major outlets have Michigan State heading for the postseason after they finished the year 10-2:

My thoughts on MSU's bowl destination

It seems pretty clear that Michigan State is in a great spot to end up in a New Year’s Six games, most likely the Fiesta Bowl based on these projections. The one thing that could derail the Spartans’ chances of reaching a New Year’s Six bowl game is Michigan losing to Iowa in the Big Ten title game on Saturday. So, ironically, Michigan State fans should be rooting for the Wolverines to beat the Hawkeyes if they’d like to see their Spartans in the Fiesta Bowl, Peach Bowl, or possibly Rose Bowl (should the granddaddy of them all want to avoid an Ohio State-Oregon rematch).
