Michigan State will face ACC champion Pittsburgh and Heisman-contending quarterback Kenny Pickett in the Peach Bowl.

The 10th-ranked Spartans get a New Year’s Six bowl game, and they get to go to Atlanta for it. This will be the program’s first Peach Bowl appearance and the Big Ten’s second in 40 years. Quite the opportunity on hand for a group that opened the season with no expectations and now has the chance to knock off a Power 5 conference champ and secure the best season for the program since 2015.

Coach Mel Tucker met with members of the media during a teleconference call Sunday to talk about the game. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. ET on ESPN on Dec. 30. Here’s what Tucker had to say:

The Spartans ranked 64th this season in yards per pass allowed and 111th in opponent completion percentage. Pickett threw for 4,319 yards and 42 touchdowns this season for the Panthers. He completed 67% of his throws and averaged nearly 9 yards per attempt.
