Michigan State releases time, broadcast changes for 3 February contests
Michigan State basketball is hoping to get back to action, and the Spartans revealed the times and broadcast designations for three contests in February.
Earlier in the week, head coach Tom Izzo discussed the outlook for the Spartans as the team wrestles with COVID-19. Izzo was optimistic though cautious in his comments, and Michigan State is still currently scheduled to face Rutgers on Jan. 28.
On Friday, MSU released the times and broadcast networks for games against Nebraska, Michigan, and Purdue in February. Most notably, Michigan State’s first game against archrival Michigan will tip at 12 pm EST and will be aired on ESPN.
That game is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 6, in Ann Arbor, and the season finale between the two teams will be in East Lansing on March 7. Here is the update:

Michigan State has already faced Nebraska and Purdue once this season. The Spartans beat Nebraska but the last game the Spartans played before the pause in team activities was a loss to Purdue. Hopefully the team looks better once the calendar hits February.
