In addition, MSU plays at Miami in 2021, at Boise State in 2022 and hosts Boise State in 2023. The Spartans host Bowling Green, Western Michigan and Notre Dame this fall. Utah State is really scheduling up in their non-conference slate with this game in two seasons and an upset would go a long way.

The Central Michigan Chippewas will face MSU at Spartan Stadium in 2018, while the Western Michigan Broncos will do the same in 2019. It's not going to hit quite those heights every year, of course, especially if one or both of the teams is struggling, but this is one of the most-watched matchups in college football regardless of the implications, and it can produce some mammoth ratings when the stakes are high.

Michigan State returns mostly intact from a 20-15 season and is likely a preseason top-three team in 2017-18.

Springboks draw All Blacks for World Cup but it's actually okay
SCOTLAND have been drawn against Ireland and host nation Japan in the pool stage of the Rugby World Cup. The All Blacks are in the first of five bands due to them being the top side on World Rugby rankings.

But with the conference's new television rights deal coming into effect for the 2017 season, it looks like the Penn State vs. Ohio State game on October 28, and several other marquee games this fall will be shown on FOX.

According to multiple reports, MI coach Jim Harbaugh participated via teleconference on Monday's upfronts, calling Fox "the new primary home for Big Ten football". But grabbing this matchup is a huge part of why Fox was willing to pay more for what's mostly the same number of games.

FOX will also be televising Oklahoma at Oklahoma State and Texas at USC.
