Vikings-Bears Game Stirs College Memories for Cousins & Foles
CHICAGO (AP) — Kirk Cousins remembers signing to play for Michigan State, then finding out a few weeks later some prospect from football-obsessed Texas named Nick Foles was joining the Spartans as part of Mark Dantonio’s first recruiting class.
It wasn’t a good feeling. Cousins figured he would have a tough time getting off the bench all those years ago.
The former college teammates will be on opposite sides when Cousins and the resurgent Minnesota Vikings (3-5) visit Foles and the struggling Chicago Bears (5-4) on Monday night.
The kickoff is set for 7:15 PM CT tomorrow night. (TV: ESPN and WCCO-4. Radio WJON AM1240/95.3 FM)
