Head coach Brady Hoke has several concerns going into Saturday's Legends Division battle between his Michigan Wolverines and the Michigan State Spartans.

First, Michigan has lost four straight to the Spartans, something that doesn't sit well with students, fans and players alike.

Second, the Spartan have not only defeated the Wolverines on the scoreboard, they've dominated both lines of scrimmage. Simply put, Michigan State has been physically tougher.

Third, a Michigan (4-2, 2-0) victory would virtually eliminate the the Spartans (4-3, 1-2) from the Legends Division race.

Fourth, a win would most likely push forward Hoke’s recruiting dominance over Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio. In fact, several potential recruits will be on both Big House sidelines.

Let's take a look at how the Wolverines might end the losing streak.
