Michigan State football Head Coach Mel Tucker continued to make his rounds on Sunday, as he addressed the MSU women's fanbase during halftime of their game against Michigan.

He started out with how happy he was to be back in East Lansing.

"I just want to say how happy I am to be back home," Tucker said. "Thank you."

Tucker promised the fans his team would be relentless.

"Our football program will be relentless and I promise you, we will get it done," Tucker said.

The Spartans' game against Michigan was their annual "Pink Game" where they show support for breast cancer awareness. Tucker followed up his football promises and finished his speech with his own support for the cause.

"It's great to see so many people here supporting breast cancer awareness," he said. "For me it's personal. My sister in-law, Ronda, is a breast cancer survivor. So whatever we have to do to support breast cancer awareness, let's do it and let's do it together. Go pink and go green."
