#2 Michigan’s perfect season will get be put to the test once again this weekend as they travel to East Lansing to face their Big 10 rival, Michigan State. The teams will not only be battling for Big 10 supremacy but also for the Paul Bunyan Trophy, given to the winning team after the game. Michigan currently leads the all-time series 68-35-5 over Michigan State.
If you don’t remember what happened last year, here’s a video to refresh your memory. It was arguably one of the best and craziest finishes in college football last year.
Michigan will look to avenge their heartbreaking loss to the Spartans from last year. Coach Jim Harbaugh has the team clicking on all cylinders, coming off of a 41-8 victory over Illinois to make them 7-0 on the year. With a matchup with Ohio State on the horizon, all of the pressure is on the Wolverines because one loss could make or break their playoff chances. The player that makes Michigan go is Heisman hopeful Jabrill Peppers aka Mr. Do-It-All. The dynamic Peppers plays offense, defense and special teams and can break a game open with just one play.
On the other side, Michigan State has had a rocky year to stay the least. Just a year removed from a College Football Playoff appearance, the Spartans are on a five game losing streak and are tied for last place in the Big 10. That being said, Michigan State has won seven of the last eight meetings with Michigan Coach Mark Dantonio is a proven winner so do not be surprised if this game is close going into the 4th quarter.
