With no remaining chance for a Big Ten East title and already being bowl eligible, it could be in the best interest of Lewerke and the Spartans to give Lombardi experience and rest the junior’s ailing shoulder. More: Dantonio's QB decision could shatter Michigan State football's cohesion Running in place After … [Read more...] about Michigan State losing to Nebraska would be bad; who’s QB?
