Broncos to face Spartans in East Lansing
EAST LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - College football is back and Friday night the Broncos will head to East Lansing to battle the Spartans under the lights.
It's Western's sixth consecutive opener against a big ten school and it's P.J. Flecks first game as head coach for the Broncos.
The Bronco's are coming off a 4-and-8 season, while MSU went 7-and-6.
Last time the teams met in September 2010 MSU came out on top 38-to-14.
Coach Fleck talked about the first game of the season and why it's important to come out swinging.
"We talk to our players all the time about starting fast, finishing fast and we have to be able to do that no matter who we play. I think we have to send a message of how we play right off the bat. This is who we are, this is our identity. Here we go. Whether it's offense, defense, special teams it is the how in this program," said Coach Fleck.
Andrew Maxwell will get the start at quarterback for the Spartans, who are a four touchdown favorite to win the game.
Newschannel 3's Andy Pepper will be reporting live from East Lansing starting at 5:00.
Kickoff is set for 8:00 p.m. and you can catch the game on the Big Ten Network.
