Football michiganstate.247sports.com —  Michigan State has been present in the College Football Playoff conversation throughout this offseason. And as the No. 5 team in the Associated Press Poll and No. 6 in the USA Today Coaches Poll, the Spartans are right there in the minds of media and coaches alike. One ESPN expert thinks even more highly of the Spartans, picking MSU to win the whole thing this season. ESPN national writer Travis Haney predicted Michigan State as his No. 1 seed in the CFP, taking down No. 4 Arizona State in the semifinals before beating No. 2 Oklahoma for the national title. Texas A&M is his No. 3 seed.

Football freep.com —  The one hurdle between Michigan State and a Big Ten championship -- and possibly a College Football Playoff berth -- is Ohio State. And at least a handful of people think the gap between the defending national champions and the No. 5 Spartans is razor thin. Big Ten Network analysts Howard Griffith and Gerry DiNardo are two of them, after watching both teams on the BTN camp tour earlier this summer.

Football isportsweb.com —  Michigan State opens up their season Friday night against Western Michigan in Kalamazoo. Besides the interesting day, time and location for the first game of the season, most people will look at that matchup and see an easy win for Michigan State against a directional MAC school. While the Spartans are still considered a favorite by more than two touchdowns, this game likely won’t be the cakewalk that a lot of people are expecting.

Football thecoverfour.com —  Even more than the abilities of presumptive 1st round pick quarterback Connor Cook, if the Spartans are looking to rerun their unprecedented offensive success from last season, it will almost certainly be driven by the five (or six) men at the point of attack. Even an inexperienced running back can occasionally find the gaps in a defensive front if they’re opened where they’re supposed to be, consistently enough.

Football mlive.com —  Riley Bullough's ascension to Michigan State's starting middle linebacker role this season seemed a likely one, after his father Shane, uncle Chuck and brother Max all manned the position for the Spartans. But his position at another spot on the Spartans' depth chart was far less likely: kick returner.

Meantime, although Josiah Price has traveled extensively it never gets old for him and he’s always looking forward to his next adventure. O’Connor and Price found common ground in late June and early July, along with Michigan State teammates Paul Lang and Jack Conklin, in Australia of all places.

Football isportsweb.com —  This Friday evening people from Kalamazoo to East Lansing will be tuned in to see the Michigan State football team square off against the Western Michigan Broncos in part of the “Celebrate the State” football series. While it’s yet another genius idea from Mark Hollis that will help keep revenue inside the state and promote the non-Power Five teams that reside in Michigan, the Spartans’ game against the Broncos will provide a tougher task than most expect and should be beneficial to Mark Dantonio’s team as early as next week.

Football mlive.com —  Michigan State playing at Western Michigan was a good idea when the "Celebrate the State" plan was first announced in 2009, and it still is a good idea. The fact that the Spartans are ranked No. 5 in the nation and playing a worthy Broncos team in Kalamazoo is refreshing for college football traditionalists who believe that games belong on campus.

His 2015 gang in terms of skill and depth looks a great deal like two teams of 50 years ago at Michigan State — two teams that won — or played for, depending upon your view of polls — a pair of national championships.
