Tomorrow one of the greatest instate rivalries in all of sports is happening. The Michigan Wolverines are playing the Michigan State Spartans in the most competitive sport that play in. This will be 102nd meeting between these teams and currently Michigan leads the series 67-29-5. There have been a lot of great games between these two teams. There also have been a lot of great players who have played for both colleges. Here are some of the names that have played at U of M.
Those are just a few of the names that have played for the Wolverines. The Spartans don’t come up short on the list of talent they have had come through MSU. They have names that been very successful. Here are some of the players that have come out of East Lansing.
T. J. Duckett
Kirk Gibson (yes the baseball player)
So as you can see both schools have produced good football players who have had successful careers either in college or in the NFL. I don’t have a problem admitting that I am a U of M fan over MSU. However I do root for MSU when they are not playing the Wolverines. I like to see any team in my home state do well. This rivalry gets the most competitive when they are playing football or basketball. The fans are passionate about who they like and don’t which makes it an awesome rivalry to watch. Tomorrow another chapter will be written with players like Tate Forcier and Kirk Cousins. Both teams are headed in different directions this season. U of M is 4-0 while MSU is 1-3. It is a must win for both teams tomorrow because MSU needs to salvage their season and U of M needs to keep the momentum rolling. I cannot wait for tomorrows game. I have a feeling it’s going to be on to remember.
