On Tuesday, Michigan State Football head coach Mark Dantonio confirmed that this year's spring game would follow the same format as last year's match.

MLive.com's Matt Wenzel reported the game "will feature a modified scoring system with the offense producing points as it normally would while the defense earns points a variety of ways."

The Spartans made the switch during the 2017 spring game after a disappointing 3-9 season and a tumultuous offseason.

In past years, teams had been selected via a draft process.

There will be much to look for this year as the Spartans look to continue the bounce back from the 2016 season.

Last year's Spartan squad finished the year 10-3 after a heavy win against Washington State in the Holiday Bowl.

This year's spring game takes place on Saturday, April 7 and take place at 5 p.m. at Spartan Stadium.

The annual event is free to the public and will include activities for young football players prior to the game.
