BCS Trophy Coming to the Studio

     Let's see mid Michigan has  a gold medal here from the London Olympics, right?  And Matt Greene of the Los Angeles Kings brought the Stanley Cup to his Grand Ledge hometown August 10th right?  Now the BCS championship trophy has arrived Thursday afternoon from the Detroit airport for the weekend.  Dr. Pepper is its sponsor and it is worth $30,000.  The football is made in Waterford, Ireland.  It last made an appearance at an MSU game in 1999 and it appears where two teams meet who are thought to have a chance to play in the BCS title game.   This season it's in January in Miami.  The trophy will be on display around and then in Spartan Stadium before and during the Notre Dame game Saturday night before heading on to Oregon.  You're not allowed to touch it either after the father of an Alabama player dropped it in celebration after the Crimson Tide beat LSU in January to win the last BCS title in New Orleans.
