Michigan State Spartan fans in the Traverse City and Manistee areas will be able to watch the Rose Bowl on the big screen New Years Day.

The State Theatre in downtown Traverse City will be hosting a watch party for the game and tickets are free. Doors will open at 4:30 for pregame so MSU fans can get there early and get their popcorn ready. Management at the State Theatre tell 7&4 that about half of the tickets are sold so far.

Fans of the Green and White in the Manistee area will also be treated to a big screen watch party at the Vogue Theatre. Tickets are also free for the Vogue and will be available beginning Wednesday at 10am on a first come, first serve basis. The Vogue will begin seating for their watch party at 4pm but there will be tailgating around the theatre earlier in the afternoon.
