Michigan State's victory anthem throughout the 2013 season has been Rich Homie Quan's "Type of Way," largely in part because cornerback Darqueze Dennard, who grew up in Georgia like the rapper, urged teammates to listen to it.
The song became such a staple in the locker room that head coach Mark Dantonio gave a shout-out to the rapper after the Spartans' Big Ten title game win.
Now, according to Mike Griffith of MLive.com, a plan is in place to get Quan out to Pasadena for the team's Rose Bowl game against Stanford.
UPDATE: Wednesday, January 1, 3:51 p.m. ET
According to Yahoo! Sports, Rich Homie Quan will be joining the Spartans on the sidelines as they take on the Cardinal.

"I want to be out there in a green jersey and feel a part of Michigan State," Quan said (per Griffith). "I want to be at the game, I want to be out there with them. I feel a part of Michigan State now, and you don’t even know what it means to me."
Quan has requested a No. 31 jersey, the number Dennard wears, if he makes the trip to California.
