Game week arrives at WMU
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - It's game week at WMU.
The Broncos open the 2013 campaign on the road Friday night at Michigan State--Western's sixth-consecutive opener against a Big Ten school.
Dating back to 2008, they've opened with Michigan State (now) twice, Michigan twice, Illinois, and Nebraska, who wasn't a Big Ten member then, but is now.
Head Coach P.J. Fleck held his first weekly news conference as head of the program, as Michigan State announced today that fifth-year senior quarterback Andrew Maxwell will get the start.
Western is 2-11 all-time against the Spartans, but the catch is, the last win came in 1919.
Needless to say, the Broncos are a big underdog, as Vegas calls it about a 4 touchdown spread.
Fleck enters the opener with one thing on his mind.
