One of the rising stars of the MSU football team is junior linebacker Riley Bullough. His football pedigree is well known: his grandfather Hank Bullough played at MSU in the 50s; his father, Shane, was a Spartan in the 80s; his brother Max was here through the 2013 season, and another brother, Byron, is a redshirt freshman at MSU. Beyond that, his other grandfather, Jim Morse, played at Notre Dame, and three uncles also played college football.On New Years Day, after MSU had overcome a 20-point deficit to Baylor in the Cotton Bowl to take a one point lead, Riley Bullough ended Baylor’s hopes of retaking the lead with a late game interception.

Current State’s Scott Pohl recently talked with Riley Bullough about spring football practice at MSU and his other passion: a budding music career. He says Michigan State wasn’t always his favorite football team.
