Headline Goes Here

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Michigan State linebacker Max Bullough has an opportunity to make a comeback.

The East-West Shrine Game announced Wednesday that Bullough has accepted an offer to play in its event Jan. 18 in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The senior was suspended on Dec. 26 for violating team rules and the details of what he did were not announced and have not been reported. The two-time captain, third-team All-America and All-Big Ten player did not play in the Rose Bowl, where the Spartans beat Stanford. Kyler Elsworth replaced Bullough and made the victory-sealing tackle on fourth-and-1 near midfield with 1:46 left against the Cardinal.

Max Bullough's grandfather, father and two uncles played football at Michigan State. His younger brother, Riley was a redshirt freshman on the team last season.
