Western Michigan

Michigan State opens up the 2022 campaign against Western Michigan on September 2nd. The Broncos are tasked with replacing Kaleb Eleby, who has been the starting quarterback in Kalamazoo for the past two seasons.

It appears that Jack Salopek is the man for the job, and he has beat out Mareyohn Hrabowski and Alabama transfer Stone Hallenbach.

Akron

While new Akron head coach Joe Moorehead has not officially released who will be the starting quarterback, it is assumed that DJ Irons will reassume his starting role from 2021, where he played well until an injury ended his season.

Washington

A name Spartan fans will be very familiar with, Indiana transfer Michael Penix Jr. has won the starting quarterback job over redshirt sophomore Dylan Morris and former 5-star prospect Sam Huard.
