Jackson Lumen Christi fans cheer for their team against Traverse City St. Francis in the Division 7 MHSAA Football Finals at Ford Field in Detroit on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2022. 

Thanksgiving means football in Detroit, and this fall, Michigan State will be part of creating four straight days of football at Ford Field.

The university announced on Wednesday that its regular-season finale against Penn State will shift from Spartan Stadium and will be played at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 24 in Detroit. It comes the day after the Detroit Lions host their annual Thanksgiving Day game and precedes two days of high school state championships that will be played on Saturday and Sunday, a shift from the typical Friday-Saturday schedule.
