If there was a College Football Playoff in 2013-14, Mark Dantonio believes that his Spartans would have been national champions. This season, Michigan State gets another shot with four playoff berths on the line, and the path to a championship began with today’s first fall practice. The Spartans posted highlights from today’s practice, as well as some comments from Dantonio, this afternoon.
Michigan State opens the season with Jacksonville State, but the road to the playoffs really begins on September 6 with a huge game at Oregon. If they win that, they’ll be in very good shape heading into Big Ten play.
