Captain Video: Treadwell, Bullough, Dennard

EAST LANSING - The 106th meeting between Michigan State and Michigan is an important divisional match-up between two teams determined to reach the Big Ten Championship game in Indianapolis.

But the game has far deeper meaning for senior captains Blake Treadwell, Max Bullough, and Darqueze Dennard.

"My emotions are very high," said Treadwell. "But I mean, every senior it's going to be very high because we only have two more games in Spartan Stadium to play. I know the time clock is ticking for me, so I want to enjoy every game I can, especially these two games knowing it'll be my last two times in Spartan Stadium."

Treadwell, a three-year starter at guard, made his Michigan State debut against Michigan as an interior defensive lineman as a true freshman in 2009.

"That was my first game I actually played because I was going to get red shirted, so it was a really big deal for me," said Treadwell. "I remember five years ago I think it was. It's amazing how time has flown. Five years ago, it was my first game, they said they were going to take my red shirt off and I was going to play. So I think I had about 12 to 14 snaps in that game. I was nervous as anybody could be as a freshmen going out there. The fans were very hyped. I was very nervous as a player, but I also wanted to show I could play. I put so much work into the off season. I remember it was very rewarding to play in that game."
