It’s early Saturday morning and you’re trying to figure out what to do for the football game, here are just a few suggestions while in East Lansing at Michigan State University! 

1. Zeke the Wonder Dog

There is no halftime show without being on the edge of your seat wondering if the infamous golden retriever will catch the next Frisbee thrown for him.

2. Tailgating 

Other than actually watching the game, one of Spartan fan’s favorite past times during the fall is tailgating before home games, and even for some away games.

3. The Sea of Green and White 

No matter who the game is against, and how many people are in town to support the opposing team, there is always a sea of green and white wherever you go on campus

4. “It’s a Beautiful Day for Football!”

The weather has no effect on the Spartan fans because they love their football team will stand by them and they know any weather is perfect for football.

5. The Spartan Marching Band

This band is beyond talented and is nearly bursting at the seams with school spirit. They never disappoint with their halftime performances.

6. The Fight Song

Halloween is not the only day people like to dress up, game day in East Lansing is full of people in the well-known Sparty attire.
