Location: Jack Breslin Student Events Center, East Lansing, MI
Texas vs. Michigan State Live TV: ESPN2
For weeks and weeks, the Longhorns were considered one of the bigger jokes in the country. They really made a name for themselves when they knocked off the North Carolina Tar Heels by 18 point in Austin just a few days ago though, and now, they might be considered a worthy team of going into East Lansing and competing with the Spartans. Not so fast. The Spartans are playing well, and they have just two losses on the campaign. They haven’t beaten a team of this caliber in quite some time though, and they’ll be thrilled to have the challenge for sure. Head Coach Tom Izzo thrives in games like this, and his team is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 games against Big XII opponents. G Sheldon McClellan and G Javan Felix aren’t going to be enough to keep up with the likes of G Keith Appling, F Derrick Nix, and the rest of the Spartans, who are ready for a signature victory to carry them into the holidays.
