Michigan State 2016 Schedule

**  Of the four teams to make the College Football Playoff last season, the least likely to return in 2016 is Michigan State.

**  Here’s the Spartans’ schedule, with the most formidable foes in green and other challenges in italics.

September 2       Furman
September 17     at Notre Dame
September 24     Wisconsin
October 1            at Indiana
October 8            Brigham Young    (Not quite a challenge because it’s at home)
October 15          Northwestern      (Not quite a challenge because it’s at home)
October 22          at Maryland
October 29          Michigan      (Wolverines won’t forget last year’s Spartan miracle at the Big House)
November 5        at Illinois
November 12      Rutgers
November 19      Ohio State       (Buckeyes won’t forget last year’s last-second loss in the rain)
November 26      at Penn State      (Dangerous after emotional game vs Ohio State)

Far from an easy schedule.  The saving grace might be that three of the four toughest games (and five of the toughest seven) are at home.
