Michigan State fans will have a chance to evaluate the team's progress Saturday when the Spartans take the field for their spring game. Quarterback Andrew Maxwell enters his senior season with more experience, but he actually split time with Connor Cook in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl last year.
That competition is one to watch, and Michigan State also has questions to answer at running back after workhorse Le'Veon Bell left the Spartans early to go to the NFL draft.
Michigan State sets up its spring game with a player draft, which took place Wednesday. Seniors on both the Green and White teams drafted underclassmen position by position.
