The 2019 Big Ten Media Days are being held on Thursday and Friday in Chicago and BTN is televising the two-day event.

On Thursday afternoon, Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio spoke with the media and talked about numerous topics while answering questions. Dantonio talked about QB Brian Lewerke, his team’s mantra this season and the difficult schedule ahead.

“Brian Lewerke has his confidence back, and is bigger and stronger than ever,” Dantonio said. “Brian is our No. 1 quarterback right now. ‘Chase the moment’ will be the mantra.”

Dantonio was asked about his schedule and he brought up a four-week stretch that will feature road games against Ohio State and Wisconsin in particular.

“We’ve won in every one of those stadiums,” he said. “We need to embrace those stadiums. Going to an away stadium will be tough.”

Michigan State’s 2019 season starts on Aug. 30 against Tulsa at home.
