2019-20 Big Ten Schedule Release: Michigan State

A 2-game series against Northern Michigan will get things started this year for Michigan State.

This year the Spartans will look to impress upon their 12-19-5 overall record from a reason ago where they were sent home by eventual back-to-back Big Ten Champs Notre Dame. But this is a new season and they can only go up since finishing last in the conference standing a year ago.

Make sure to tune in for plenty of Big Ten men's hockey action this season right here on FloHockey!
