EAST LANSING, Mich. (WXYZ) -- "Make no mistake about it, we are the reigning Big Ten champions, and we need to work hard to defend that."

After his press conference, Dantonio sat down with Justin Rose and expanded on that thought, among others as the 12th ranked Spartans prepare for Furman on Friday night at Spartan Stadium.
