One of the rising stars of the MSU football team is junior linebacker Riley Bullough. His football pedigree is well known: his grandfather Hank Bullough played at MSU in the 50s; his father, Shane, was a Spartan in the 80s; his brother Max was here through the 2013 season, and another brother, Byron, is a redshirt freshman at MSU. Beyond that, his other grandfather, Jim Morse, played at Notre Dame, and three uncles also played college football.

Can MSU beat the Blue Devils and then, either Kentucky or Wisconsin in the championship game on Monday night?
