Punter Zoltan Mesko in Michigan State gear after losing a bet with Brian Hoyer.FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Quarterback Tom Brady and punter Zoltan Mesko were forced to sport Michigan State apparel inside the Patriots' locker room Tuesday after losing what's become an annual bet with backup quarterback -- and former Spartan -- Brian Hoyer.
Michigan State upset previously undefeated Michigan, 28-14, on Saturday, forcing Brady and Mesko, former Wolverines, to don green and white for the day. Brady, wearing a black Spartans T-shirt as he walked through the locker room, simply shook his head when asked about the attire. He actually got off pretty easy. Typically the first access of the week sends Brady to the interview podium, but the bye week spared him of that obligation.
Brady quickly pulled on a blue long-sleeved hoodie before returning to his locker.
Mesko didn't seem to mind fulfilling the bet. He even stopped for a couple shots from cameras, including one that got sent out by the team's official Twitter feed.
This isn't the first time Brady's been forced to don green and white. Michigan State has owned the Paul Bunyan Trophy game the past four seasons, making Hoyer undefeated in the rivalry since joining the Patriots in 2009.
