Kirk Cousins embraces opportunity to start at quarterback for Michigan State

East Lansing, MI – After being named the starting quarterback to open the season this Saturday against Montana State, Kirk Cousins looks to take advantage of his opportunity. Entering his Sophomore season, Cousins has had some game experience last season as a freshmen backing up Brian Hoyer.

During spring and summer practice Cousins and fellow sophomore Keith Nichol have had a very close competition for the starting role at quarterback.

As game day approaches Cousins' preparation will not change as he will be living one of his dreams this Saturday leading the Spartan football team onto the field as their starting quarterback.
