Michael Bennett was in the stadium the last time Georgia played Michigan State, but his loyalties were not with the team to which he now belongs.

“I went to the Capital One Bowl when Michigan State played Georgia a couple years ago [in 2009] and sat on the Michigan State side,” said Bennett, who celebrated his 20th birthday Monday. “I had no idea I was going to go to Georgia or anything.”

The redshirt freshman receiver -- then a junior at Alpharetta (Ga.) High School -- has a good excuse. His father John is a Michigan State alum who married his wife Beth on the school’s campus. They were non-denominational campus ministers there for a few years, then moved to work at Penn State -- where Michael was born -- before finding a home ministering in Georgia.
