The two schools met just once last season — an 89-73 MSU win in Ann Arbor — but are set for a traditional home-and-home next year. Michigan coach John Beilein has made clear he prefers playing the Spartans twice a year, and most fans would likely agree.
Dates and times for the games haven't been determined just yet, and there's no guarantee of a two-game series in future seasons.
Other highlights of Michigan's conference schedule include a home-and-home with Indiana and a visit from Purdue and former Wolverine Spike Albrecht.
