Sharing is caring!

The 2020 season for the Michigan State Spartans has officially reached a conclusion.

In a statement, head coach Mel Tucker explained that his team would not be accepting a Bowl Game invitation, and instead will begin focusing on next season.

Their next scheduled game is September 4 at Northwestern.

“We have decided as a program that the best decision for our team is to prepare for the 2021 season,” Tucker said in a statement..” I’m proud of the players for the way they handled themselves during this difficult and challenging year. They endured a season unlike any we have had before and worked hard to remain diligent in following all of our safety protocols. Our players have been on campus since re-arriving in June and deserve the chance to go home and take some time away from football.

“Even though our season has come to a close, the time that we have had to work with the players in practice and coach in games has been invaluable for us in establishing our culture. We’re looking forward to relentlessly working this offseason in preparation for the 2021 season. The future is bright for Michigan State football. Go Green!”

The Spartans finished 2-5 under Tucker, with signature wins coming over rival Michigan and Northwestern.
