Fans are in for a sports-filled week leading up to Saturday’s Big Ten football showdown when the Spartans take on the Ohio State Buckeyes at 8 p.m. at Spartan Stadium.

In addition to ESPN College GameDay coming to campus, ESPN’s “First Take” will broadcast live from 10 a.m. to noon Nov. 7 at the MSU Union.

The broadcast will take place in the main lounge. This is the first time "First Take" will broadcast live from a college or university.
