MSU announced late this morning, hours before kickoff against Ohio State, that athletic director Mark Hollis and his family has donated $1 million for a variety of purposes.
Here’s Rexrode’s story on the gift, part of which will be directed toward renovations at Spartan Stadium. Nearly half of it is going to establishing the Hollis Family Endowed Scholarship that will be awarded to in-state undergraduate students with “strong academic credentials.” Hollis and his wife, Nancy, are both alums who met at MSU as students.
On the field, defensive tackle Tyler Hoover is not dressed for the Spartans. He’s been battling a calf injury, and not having him leaves Micajah Reynolds as the starter and the MSU interior rotation a bit depleted while facing moble Ohio State QB Braxton Miller.
