Mel Tucker got what he expected from Michigan State fans on Saturday night.
The Spartans coach has spent most of the week begging fans to show up in droves and fuel up for a big game against Nebraska. The fans delivered, and so did the Spartans.
Michigan State picked up a 23-20 overtime victory on Saturday night, and Tucker was sure to thank the fans who showed up at “The Woodshed”.
Here are some comments from Tucker after the game:
The Woodshed was the place to be this Saturday night. Proud of the effort we’ve put in and we’ll continue to Keep Choppin ‘. Spartan fans, you were loud and showed up. See you next Saturday night ðð¾ #TIRELESSLY pic.twitter.com/bmJqTkYE5A
