East Lansing — Smash-mouth, hard-hitting, intense, meaningful. All the ingredients needed for a good old-fashioned football rivalry.

But considering how things have gone the past few seasons, one budding rivalry was on the thoughts of many late last week at the Big Ten media days in Chicago — Michigan State-Wisconsin.
