CMU, MSU Announce New Football Series

The Central Michigan football program announced a new three-game series with Michigan State on Wednesday.

All three games will be played in East Lansing, with the series beginning in the 2023 season. The 2023 meeting replaces a game that was previously scheduled at Alabama.

“There is such a great tradition between Central Michigan and Michigan State, and we are excited to build on that with this three-game series,” CMU Vice President and Director of Athletics Michael Alford said in a release. “I appreciate the staff at Michigan State working with us to put together a series that I know our fans and alumni really look forward to and is another great opportunity to play an in-state opponent.”

The two teams have met 11 times previously, with the last meeting taking place during the 2018 season. CMU won back-to-back games in the series in 1991 and 1992 and pulled off a thrilling 29-27 win over MSU in 2009.

MSU has hosted 10 of the 11 previous meetings, with CMU welcoming in the Spartans in 2012.
