Members of the media are given tons of information prior to each game. That's how broadcasters can give you all those wacky stats about how a certain team hasn't won a game on a Wednesday in months ending in "y" in 23 years.
One of the tools media members use is available to the general public and those are the pre-game notes. They list everything anyone needs to know about both teams - home record, away records, records in the series, records against that conference, etc.
The game notes for the MSU/Cal game can be found here.
I mean the game is not until 8 p.m. ET, take some time to catch up on the Spartans' matchup before the game.
