Michigan State will be put to the test this Saturday when it hosts Michigan in a battle of undefeated rivals. Moments ago, Spartans legend Magic Johnson went on Twitter to share a message for his alma mater.
Johnson stressed the importance of Michigan State avoiding turnovers and foolish penalties this weekend against Michigan.
“I want to wish the @MSU_Football team good luck tomorrow,” Magic Johnson tweeted. “No turnovers, no penalties, and every player must keep their emotions in check and do their job. Go Green! Go White!”
If the Spartans want to remain undefeated through Week 9, they can’t afford to give Cade McNamara and the Wolverines’ offense extra possessions on Saturday.
