A group of Michigan State players will be traveling during the team’s bye week for a good cause.
The Spartans are teaming up with Lansing, Mich. mayor Virg Bernero to raise money and provide relief to victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas, according to the Lansing State Journal. Mark Dantonio and his team are joining local business in the #LansingStrong4TX campaign.
The campaign is aiming to raise $10,000 and is focusing its relief efforts on communities surrounding Houston, according to the State Journal’s report.

In a press release, Bernero’s office said that on the weekend of Sept. 16 Michigan State “plans to send a contingent of MSU football players to Texas to help with unloading and distribution of donated goods and other charitable assistance as may be needed.” Originally, the group was set to be about 20 players, but that number has been growing. The team has not yet announced which players would be making the trip.
Sounds like more and more players are signing up, so they're still figuring out logistics and such.
