Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio confirmed Tuesday that Connor Cook will start at quarterback for Saturday's game at Notre Dame. It will be Cook's third consecutive start. Dantonio said there is a future for senior Andrew Maxwell to play this season at some point. Dantonio said Notre Dame's defensive front hurt the Spartans in last year's game at East Lansing. The Irish are one touchdown favorites to win their third consecutive game over the Spartans. Kick off is 3:30pm on WILX TV Ten.
