The Spartans are getting ready to take on the Bucknell Bison.
Tip time is set for 7:10 Friday night at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit.
The Spartans say the bison resemble nothing like a Big 10 squad. They have shooters at all positions.
All MSU knows is their the first obstacle on the path to San Antonio.
MSU's bench will definitely be a big factor in Friday's outcome.
