The Michigan State Spartans (#5) are headed to the Big Ten Championship game on Saturday against #4-ranked Iowa Hawkeyes. In honor of the big game, Governor Snyder proclaimed Friday (today) as "Spartan Green Day."

According to the Detroit Free Press:

Lt. Gov. Brian Calley, a Michigan State graduate, this week presented the proclamation to Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio and the team in East Lansing."

Although Snyder is a graduate of the rival, U of M, he encourages everyone to show their support today for the Sparty's and rock the green!

MSU vs Iowa will be held in Indianapolis and will be broadcast on FOX at 8:17 p.m.
