Winner Of Michigan vs Michigan State Is Obvious, Says ESPN
The winner of Michigan vs Michigan State is obvious, says ESPN.
One of the marquee games set to take place this weekend is a Big Ten showdown between the Wolverines and Spartans.
Heading into this season Michigan vs Michigan State was viewed as a game that would likely be consequential for both squads as they fought for the conference crown.
Now that we are actually here, though, this outing is much less exciting than most figured it would be.
Michigan disappointed this season, unable to take advantage of the fact that Urban Meyer was gone at Ohio State. The Wolverines have remained exactly who they were for the entirety of Jim Harbaugh’s run at the program – a non-factor when it comes to competing for a title.
Michigan State, meanwhile, has completely fallen apart this season. Things have gotten so bad there that folks are genuinely worried about Mark Dantonio’s future.
Given all the disappointment surrounding both programs this season, this Saturday’s showdown has lost a good deal of luster.
Nevertheless, the show must go on.
ESPN recently released their prediction for who would win between Michigan and Michigan State, and they don’t see this one being particularly close.
