Michigan at Michigan State, October 30, East Lansing, MI
$1M Challenge for Teachers
Spartan Stadium – East Lansing, MI
Michigan leads series 71-37-5
Last Game: Michigan State won 27-24 in 2020
The Spartans have won 9 of the last 13 games in the series
Overall this series still skews heavily towards the Wolverines but the Spartans have gotten the better of their in-state rivals in recent years including last year’s nail biter in Ann Arbor. The season records seem to mean little in this match-up as the bad blood between schools means both teams bring their best. The three losses Michigan Head Coach Jim Harbaugh has suffered to the Spartans have come by a combined 10 points while the 2021 match-up will mark the series debut for new Michigan State Head Coach Mel Tucker.
