No. 6 Michigan is 6-0 heading into a matchup against Northwestern on Saturday.
No. 9 Michigan State is 7-0 heading into a bye week.
The week after, however, Michigan and Michigan State will face off in East Lansing in what is one of the most anticipated tilts between the two teams in decades. And now, the kickoff time has been announced.
Michigan will take on Michigan State at Noon on Fox on October 30.
Michigan State is trending in the right direction after a 2-5 year in 2020, the same can be said for Michigan after their 2-4 campaign last year.
MSU head coach Mel Tucker, embracing a term for Spartan Stadium coined in the late 90’s, is nicknaming the stadium “The Woodshed”.
“The energy in the stadium and the intensity and the focus is going to be there,” Tucker said. “I believe it will be one of the toughest places to play in the country. People should not want to come to Spartan Stadium and play in The Woodshed. It should be a factor.”
