EAST LANSING — Bennie Fowler could be a candidate for a possible sixth year of eligibility because of the injuries he’s had during his career.
The senior wide receiver isn’t thinking about that right now and is focused on Michigan State’s date with Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship Game on Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Fowler said Tuesday it’s a great opportunity knowing that he could play another year and that he’d discuss that with MSU coach Mark Dantonio following the season.
A stress fracture in his foot led to Fowler redshirting during his freshman year in 2009. He played just five games because of another foot injury in 2011.
Fowler has 31 catches and leads the Spartans with 496 receiving yards and six touchdowns this season. He has 88 catches for 1,215 yards and is tied for 16th in MSU history with 11 TD catches in his career.
