The Michigan State football program will have some familiar faces in the building to cheer them on when they face Alabama in the Cotton Bowl on Thursday.

But there won’t just be current Michigan State hoopers representing the program on Thursday; Spartans basketball legend Magic Johnson will also be in the house.

We’ll see if Johnson and the rest of Michigan State’s basketball program can bring the football team some good luck against the tough Crimson Tide.
