EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Michigan State players came out to meet reporters after the game with green hats that said “PROGRAM WIN” on the back.
It’s a far cry from the Big Ten championships the Spartans played for earlier in the decade, but they were able to save face a bit by beating Maryland and becoming bowl eligible.
“I think it’s about a four-dollar hat,” coach Mark Dantonio said. “I just felt like, hey, need to have something to hang on to, point towards. They didn’t get the hats until Friday.”
