College basketball season is right around the corner for Michigan State and now fans have an idea where one of the biggest games of the season will be held.

Michigan State will reportedly travel to Duke for their Dec. 1 contest in the Champions Classic, according to CBS Sports.

Because of COVID-19 concerns, Michigan State won’t have to contend with the Cameron Crazies, as fans won’t be permitted.

The expectation is that Michigan State will host Duke in the near future, either as part of a special event or a regular non-conference game.

The Champions Classic had originally been scheduled for a neutral site location in Chicago. After that location was scrapped, ESPN had plans to try and host the event inside a bubble in Orlando, Florida. Now, MSU gets a tough non-conference road game early in the season.

Michigan State is coming off a season in which they posted a 22-9 record and finished in a three-way tie with Wisconsin and Maryland for the best record in the B1G. Duke meanwhile went 25-6 overall and tied with Louisville and Virginia for the second best record in the ACC. Duke leads the all-time series 13-3.

Going up against perennial power Duke will certainly be an excellent litmus test for Tom Izzo’s squad. In addition to the game against Duke, the Spartans will face Virginia in the B1G/ACC Challenge and will reportedly host Notre Dame to start the 2020-21 season.
