The field for the NCAA Tournament has been set and destinations for Michigan and Michigan State University have been decided.

MSU will play Bucknell on Friday at Little Caesar's Arena in Detroit. Despite falling to the Blue Devils in the Champions Classic, the Spartans cruised through their regular season with minimal missteps, seizing the Big Ten regular-season title from the likes of Ohio State and Purdue.

Michigan State basketball only has four losses, but has had issues in certain matchups throughout the season.

As a 2- or 3-seed, it's hard to see a 15- or 14-seed knocking off Michigan State, but this maybe isn't a team to get too confident in (again, see Rutgers). That ranks as the fifth-longest active streak among Division I schools. If the Wolverines win, they'll play the victor of No. 6 seed Houston and No. 11 seed San Diego State on Saturday.

MSU captured its third outright Big Ten championship and eighth league title under Izzo with a 16-2 record in league play.
