East Lansing, MI – Michigan State's Mark Dantonio plans to be in a coaching box above the field Saturday when the No. 24 Spartans face No. 11 Wisconsin, just two weeks after he was hospitalized following a mild heart attack.
Dantonio announced his intentions Tuesday after showing up at the team's weekly news conference.
