EAST LANSING, Mich. — A lot of Spartan football fans are still shaking their heads over the team's stunning loss to Arizona State this past Saturday.

It was the second year in a row that Arizona State had the Spartans number.

Anyone hoping for some major fireworks in Mark Dantonio's weekly press conference were slightly disappointed.

The Spartans are coming off an upset loss on Saturday night but Dantonio believes the blame should be spread around....

"There is no one thing to say, that is ultimately the reason that we lost this football game," said Coach Dantonio.

"You can sit there and say we need to score more points, but I think that's elementary sort of. If you can't regroup, then that's a problem. We will regroup - I can promise you that. We will coach with energy, I can promise you that. I can promise you that we will address the issues and we will continue to get better."

And of course, this is a big week for Dantonio and the Spartans as they head to Northwestern to open up Big Ten Play.

The Wildcats have beat them three years in a row.

The Spartans and Wildcats kick off at noon on Saturday... and Mark Dantonio is hoping he can finally get that 110th win that makes him the school's all-time winningest football coach.
