EAST LANSING, Mich.Michigan State football revealed its full schedule for the 2021 season following revisions made by the Big Ten.

Here is the full Michigan State football schedule for 2021:

  • Sept. 4: at Northwestern
  • Sept. 11: Youngstown State
  • Sept. 18: at Miami
  • Sept. 25: Nebraska
  • Oct. 2: Western Kentucky
  • Oct. 9: at Rutgers
  • Oct. 16: at Indiana
  • Oct. 30: Michigan
  • Nov. 6: at Purdue
  • Nov. 13: Maryland
  • Nov. 20: at Ohio State
  • Nov. 27: Penn State

The Big Ten made tweaks to the conference schedule due to location changes for the 2020 season.

For example, Michigan State made a second-straight trip to Ann Arbor last season, so the meeting in 2021 will now be in East Lansing.

The Spartans will begin the season with a road Big Ten game and host Nebraska at the end of September before their final non-conference matchup with Western Kentucky.
