On Saturday afternoon, the state that looks like a thumb will have their allegiances split as the Michigan Wolverines host the Michigan State Spartans at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor during a game that could have major national championship implications for the winner. The 7th-ranked Spartans are 6-0 on the season after two close wins. Connor Cook has thrown for 1,334 yards, 12 touchdowns and two interceptions this season so far in looking to get State to the college football playoff. LJ Scott has 418 rushing yards and six touchdowns to lead the Spartans while Aaron Burbridge has 34 catches for 560 yards and four touchdowns as Cook’s favorite target.
The 12th-ranked Wolverines are 5-1 and have shut out their last three opponents in becoming one of the most dominating defenses in recent college football history. Jake Rudock leads the passing game with 1,135 yards through the air and five touchdowns but has also thrown six interceptions. De’Veon Smith has 390 rushing yards and four touchdowns to pace the run game while Rudock has found Amara Darboh most this season with 25 catches for 280 yards and two touchdowns. The Wolverine State is definitely going to be divided during this battle on a chilly October afternoon at the Big House.
