MSU Sports History


The MSU Sports History website celebrates the uniquely rich history of Spartan athletics, from the early competitions in 1880s student-run field days and the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association, to the rise of Michigan State University as a football national powerhouse in the mid-Twentieth century, the Big Ten era and the ultimate consolidation of MSU athletics as a world class program.

This website features invaluable historical images from MSU athletes and their contributions to the history of college sports in the United States, along with historical information and research on the origins, development and achievements of Spartan athletics.

In this video, Professor Javier Pescador talks about the MSU Sports History Website.
