It's the 50th anniversary of the 'Game of the Century,' when Notre Dame and MSU drew 10-10. Now it comes again, with MSU traveling down to South Bend to take on the Fighting Irish in a repeat match-up. Al directs a roundtable discussion previewing the ins and outs of the game this weekend and between Al, engineer Isaac Constans and Current Sports production assistants Zach Barnes, Zach Swiecicki and Griffin Wasik, all angles are covered. Then, for the segment of the day, journalism professor Joanne Gerstner and Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher are live in studio to describe the motivation and premise of their new book, "Back in the Game: Why Concussion Doesn't Have to End Your Athletic Career." Following the comprehensive summation of the most up-to-date concussion research, the show ends in typical Friday fashion, with "Reflection Friday."
