Michigan State dealing with real expectations

By  | 

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - For the first time in 2017, Michigan State is dealing with some legitimate expectations. Saturday night's 14-10 win at Michigan vaulted coach Mark Dantonio's team into the Top 25, and the No. 21 Spartans have taken a big step toward putting last year's 3-9 showing behind them. The question now is what they can accomplish this season. A bowl bid certainly seems likely, but perhaps this team is capable of more.
