Taco Bell Reverses, Keeps MSU Basketball Giveaway

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Free tacos are back on the menu for Michigan State basketball fans this season.

For years, Taco Bell locations in and around East Lansing gave out a free taco to fans with a ticket stub from a game where the Spartans scored at least 70 points. That led fans to chant "We want tacos" at the team's home court as the team approached the 70-point threshold.

Taco Bell ended the promotion this season, but fans who apparently didn't hear of the change have been lining up at Taco Bell locations after games.

On Wednesday, the fast food chain announced that its local operator is "grateful for the passionate fans" and will continue the giveaway at 10 locations for the rest of the season.
