MSU-Rutgers game postponed due to weather

The Spartans were set to take off at 3 p.m. to head to New Jersey for their Tuesday night game against Rutgers

Just before Michigan State’s team charter was set to take off for Trenton, N.J., the Spartans’ 9 p.m. Tuesday night game against Rutgers was postponed.

Rutgers announced the decision Monday afternoon. No details about a reschedule date for the game were made immediately available.

Earlier Monday, Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said the team was expecting to play the game as scheduled – even though that meant shifting practice plans and travel plans.

”There's some concerns with the travel," Izzo said at his press conference. "They pretty much guaranteed us if we get there we'll play the game."

Michigan State’s flight was scheduled to depart at 3 p.m. from Lansing. Piscataway, N.J., where Rutgers is located, is expected to receive between 18 to 24 inches of snow between Monday and Tuesday.

Izzo had voiced concerns the return trip had Michigan State made the trip as expected.
