This will be the fourth time that the two schools will play their football game at night.  They last played at night in 2019 in Columbus (an OSU victory).

This is the first kickoff time that's been announced for the upcoming football season. MSU will open the season on Friday, September 1st at Spartan Stadium against Central Michigan.  They'll also host Michigan on October 21st and Penn State on November 25th to close the regular season.  The kickoff times for all other games are expected later this spring or summer.

The Spartans are coming off a 5-7 campaign in 2022 after losing their last two games of the regular season to Indiana and Penn State, respectively.
