I know we are watching football now but the Michigan State Spartans Men's and Women's Basketball teams kick off their season this week. The men's and women's basketball teams will kick off the season not with a game but with Michigan State Madness happening on Friday, Oct. 5 at the Breslin Center.

This is an annual celebration and tradition that starts the season for both teams will be a FREE event and doors to the Breslin Center open at 8:30pm on Friday night. At Michigan State Madness not only will you get to see the new faces and returning players for both teams but also there will be a autograph session before hand. Along with the teams the he Spartan Marching Band and drumline, Michigan State cheerleaders, MSU dance team and Sparty will all be there. Then the event starts with the introduction of both teams at 9:30pm, followed by a scrimmage.

Here's a little bit of what happened at last year's event.
