Game 032 | May 11, 1953 | Biggie Munn
A former Gopher football great, Munn was entering his final year as Michigan State's football coach in 1953. He was hired to bring Spartan football into the Big Ten with success, and he exceeded all expectations, building a record of 54-9-2. He lobbied to have Notre Dame added to the Spartan schedule and promptly beat highly regarded Frank Leahy-coached teams three straight years. He served 18 years as MSU athletic director. He's a member of both the Gopher and Spartan Sports Hall of Fame, and the Munn Ice Arena in East Lansing still carries his name.
