That is not how the Spartans wanted to end the 2018 season.

Offensively speaking, this season could not end fast enough for Michigan State. Mark Dantonio’s squad was unable to consistently move the ball in the Redbox Bowl, losing 7-6 to Oregon. It marked the third time in the last four games that the Spartans did not score a touchdown.
