Michigan State's defense didn't give Michigan an inch Saturday.

Saturday's 29-6 loss to Michigan State may have been the most embarrassing defeat of Brady Hoke's tenure at Michigan. 

The Wolverines (6-2, 2-2) had lost four in a row prior to winning in 2012. Looking for back-to-back wins, they were met by a tenacious Spartans (8-1, 5-0) defense that sacked Devin Gardner seven times. 

Michigan rushed for minus-48 yards, its lowest total ever (per ABC live report). 

Why didn't Hoke take a shot before halftime? How could a team that averaged 42 points fail to score a touchdown? 

This slideshow will examine why the Wolverines fell to their in-state rivals for the fifth time in six years.
