LANSING, Mich. — “From daily antigen testing for all of our players, coaches and staff to extensive cardiac protocols and protection, the Big Ten Conference and Michigan State are leading the charge to put our players on the field safely and competitively.

“Our players have been relentlessly training in our strength and conditioning program and we will be ready to compete. Thank you to all our Spartan fans for your support and the Big Ten Task Force and the medical leaders who got us here today. Go Green!”

Please note: Coach Tucker will be available on a Zoom press conference call tomorrow (Thursday, Sept. 17, time TBA). Email on the Zoom call will be emailed separately.
