Michigan is looking for back-to-back wins with trophies on the line.

NCAA Football: Michigan State at Michigan Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

The Michigan Wolverines retained the Little Brown Jug last weekend in Minnesota, and now it is time for them to battle for another rivalry trophy — the Paul Bunyan.

Michigan State comes into Ann Arbor today with the best Global Positioning System they could find, as well as a bunch of guys who helped turn the ball over seven times last weekend...at home...in a loss against Rutgers.

Yes. Rutgers.

But none of that matters anymore, at least in the minds of the Michigan coaches and players. They have been ready for the season since before it was reinstated, having never stopped practices. They have stayed positive, all while testing negative, as coach Jim Harbaugh has said time and time again.

Meanwhile, Mel Tucker has his group of players ready for this rivalry, especially after showing them videos about the meaning of the rivalry, according to MLive’s Matt Wenzel.

But in all seriousness, Hate Week ends today. Let’s get to the important stuff you need to know.
