College football is back IN A MAJOR WAY and we couldn't be happier. There is absolutely nothing like getting up on a Saturday morning, a little tailgating with family and friends, and then heading into Spartan Stadium to catch the game.

And after last year...you know what, let's not even go there.

Let's focus on what's at hand today.

Are You Ready For Some Spartan Football?

Today our Spartans welcome the Youngstown State Penguins to Spartan Stadium. Both teams are 1-0 this early in the season.

As you search the house to cover yourself in EVERY PIECE OF SPARTAN GEAR YOU CAN FIND, let us help you before you take off and head to the field.

Today's forecast: Sunny with highs in the mid 80's.

So maybe not all of the gear. It could get a little hot for you.

What's In The Bag?

Well here's the thing. There's a no bag policy at the stadium so, leave that at home.

No bags allowed in the stadium. Bring your ID, your phone and some money for drinks and snacks in your pockets. If the weather’s threatening, you can bring some wearable rain gear but no umbrellas. The gates open 1.5 hours before the game starts or 2 hours if you’re heading to a suite. (lansing.org)

Spartans Will...wear facemask at the game. Here's how that works.

  • All individuals are required to wear masks indoors in all Michigan State campus buildings. With this policy in place, face coverings must be worn by everyone in attendance when in an indoor area of Spartan Stadium, unless actively eating or drinking.
  • The indoor face covering requirement includes, but is not limited to, the concourse of Spartan Stadium, restrooms, elevators, indoor suite and club areas and the press box.
  • Face coverings will not be required but are encouraged in the outdoor seating bowl of Spartan Stadium.
  • For the safety of guests and staff, working staff will be required to wear a mask in all indoor areas of Spartan Stadium. (MSU Spartans)

Leave your bag, bring your mask, have some Melting Moments Ice Cream Sandwiches for us.

Earlier today (Monday, August 30th) Melting Moments announced it will be returning to MSU athletic events in the fall. The company, which is itself run by MSU alumni, has signed a new contract which begins September (11th) when they welcome Youngstown State.
