Random MSU Photo of the Day: 4/20

Michigan State College playing Michigan at dedication of College Field in 1924 (not to be confused with Old College Field, where baseball, softball and soccer now play). The stadium opened in the fall of 1923, but the official dedication was the following year, where MSC almost upset U-M, but fell 7-0. It was renamed Macklin Field in 1935 and Spartan Stadium in 1957.
