Mel Tucker aiming for memorable Senior Day atmosphere inside the Woodshed
No. 12 Michigan State will host Penn State in Week 13 for Senior Day. The annual rivalry game is known as The Land Grant Trophy game.
Leading up to the conference matchup, Michigan State coach Mel Tucker is imploring the fan base to come out to the Woodshed and show support for the senior class. So far, the Spartan faithful have been brilliant with Michigan State holding a 5-0 record at home in 2021.
