Even though the Spartans made it to the tournament in the 2021/2022 season it wasn't a pretty season like some of those in the past. MSU finished 9th in the Big Ten with a record of 23-13.

The Spartans did pretty well at home but struggled throughout the season on the road.

We have a new season ahead and a special game to look forward to.

MSU vs Gonzaga will be a high-profile non-conference game that will be played on Veteran's Day, November 11, 2022, on an aircraft carrier that is in San Diego, California.

The two teams have not met since the 2011-2012 season when the Spartans upset the Zags 74-67.

Gonzaga was on fire last season and some are picking them to go all the way in the 2022-2023 season so my guess is the Spartans will have their hands full.

What Are Spartan Fans Saying About the Aircraft Carrier Game?

As you see from the first few post, fans are being hard on the Spartans and coach Izzo but I believe you can never count out MSU no matter who they play.

I love the post about a possible game on the space station because you and I both know, that someday there will be a sporting event in outer space.
