Bacon: ESPN predicts bright futures for MSU, UM football

Jul 7, 2016

What's that sound you hear?

It might be Wolverine fans chortling and Spartan fans growling as ESPN unveils its Future Power Rankings for college football. 

Every year, the network peers into the future to try to predict which college football programs are going to thrive and succeed.

This year, ESPN ranks U of M fifth, while Michigan State takes 10th place. 

Michigan Radio sports commentator John U. Bacon sat down with us today to talk about the rankings, and to touch base on the Tigers' Wednesday victory over the Cleveland Indians, to whom the Tigers had lost 11 straight games.
