Things didn't go as planned for Michigan State Fans.

After the heartbreaking loss to Alabama in the Cotton Bowl many State fans were ready to leave the game in 2015.

"You know we're still very proud of them but obviously a rough night. We'll be back next year. We'll try to do more than we did this year" said Ryan Hayes.

While the fans say the game was hard to watch they know that their Spartans gave their all.

"Obviously a rough night but Michigan State had a great year. Great team. Great career for Connor Cook and the rest of the seniors" said Hayes.

With the biggest game of the season on New Year's Eve things were expected to get crazy.

"Cedar Village I think is going to lay low tonight because really there's no one here, everyone's home for Christmas" said Michigan State Junior Eric Sturm.

With most students away, Cedar Village was left pretty quiet.

"Even though Michigan State didn't win like I don't think much is going to happen. I mean if something would have happened it would have already be happening" said Sturm.

Both East Lansing and Michigan State police had several officers patrol the area making sure things didn't go up in flames.

"Nothing is going on tonight. Even if state did win I don't know I don't think much would have happened because no one is here" Sturm said.
