The question is, will Spartan fans show up for the Redbox Bowl in Santa Clara, California, after a disappointing, 7-5 season?

Plenty of affordable tickets are available for Michigan State's third meeting against Oregon since 2014.  Some are as low as $38.

Mark Dantonio has led MSU to 11 bowl appearances in 12 seasons as coach.  He's 5-5 in those games, including the 2014 Rose Bowl and last year's Holiday Bowl, both in California.

There are at least two official MSU events planned before the Redbox Bowl kicks off at 3 p.m. New Year's Eve.  A pep rally will take place from noon to 1 p.m. Dec. 30 at the Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco.  Admission is free.  Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
