Michigan versus Michigan State, an in-state battle of Big Ten teams, both badly in need of a conference win.
Michigan State's season simply has not gone as planned, and the offense outside of Le’Veon Bell has struggled to move the ball. For Michigan, after a rocky start (to say the least), the Wolverines have responded behind the arm and legs of Denard Robinson and have put together impressive performances in back-to-back weeks. They'll get a much tougher test against a solid Spartans defense this week, though.
This game means more than just bragging rights, although those will be in play on the motivation side, as usual. The winner will likely keep themselves very much alive for the Big Ten title, while the loser will have their work cut out for them.
