2019-20 Season

Game 23: Michigan State at Michigan Preview

Michigan hosts Michigan State on Saturday afternoon (noon, FOX) as it tries to snap a four-game losing streak against its in-state rival. The two programs are looking to generate positive momentum during Big Ten play, and a rivalry win could do the trick.

The Wolverines have lost three consecutive home games and have been without Isaiah Livers since the New Year, other than 20 minutes against Illinois. The Spartans have lost two games in a row, and four out of seven, after starting 5-0 in Big Ten play.

Fans of both programs don’t want to hear about injuries, strength of schedule, or how hard it is to win on the road. At this point, they would both be satisfied with a win over their rival. Everything else can wait.
