We all know the well-worn refrain about little brothers by now. Whether the statement made by Mike Hart following Michigan’s win in 2007 had anything to do with the following four years or not, the simple fact of the matter is that Michigan State has controlled the rivalry since then.

But they did and Michigan hopes this is the year things get back on track.
Michigan State comes limping into Ann Arbor following a 19-16 double-overtime loss to Iowa, the Spartans third loss of the season so far. Their Big Ten title hopes are slim to none at this point and a loss to Michigan would essentially eliminate them from contention.
