MSU, East Lansing police receive threats against athletic events

MSU, East Lansing police receive threats against athletic events

The Spartans football team is on the road this weekend, visiting MI on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. CT.

MI won last year's meeting 32-23 at Spartan Stadium. How will the Spartans' offensive line fare against that front-seven? He needs to protect the ball against this elite MI defense which ranks No. 1 in the country. It's also a game that the Wolverines can't afford to lose is they want to be in the playoff race and contend for the Big Ten title. As Michigan's coach two years ago, he watched from the sideline as his team botched a punt that would've sealed a win against Michigan State and a potential win turned into an improbable loss as time expired. He's more athletic and mobile than Speight, so the Wolverines could look to more roll out passes and designed quarterback runs to keep the defense on their toes. It ends up being a defensive battle, with the Spartans pulling off the upset on the road.

How does cornerback Lavert Hill handle the challenge of covering receivers down the field when the quarterback may tuck the ball and run? He's struggled this season, but will need to go for over 100 yards. "I think they are sort of similar in a lot of ways". The Spartans are coming off a big conference win over Iowa - who just a week prior was two points shy of besting undefeated Penn State - with the still-improving defense allowing only 19 yards rushing on 25 attempts.

The suspect was last arrested in 2005. "He told me no calmly, I gave him a hug and proceeded to go downstairs". Police said Perry had been let go two days ago by the 37-year-old foreman, Christopher Sayers of Long Island.

PLEADING FOR PEACE: The emotionally packed rivalry, which divides the state and some households, will be played at night for the first time.

Police in East Lansing, Mich., said on Friday that they are working with authorities at Michigan State University to investigate unspecified threats made against athletic events at the school.
