The game will be broadcast by ABC beginning at 6:30 p.m.

According to Sportsbook Review, Michigan is a 13-point favorite against Michigan State. It's also a game that the Wolverines can't afford to lose is they want to be in the playoff race and contend for the Big Ten title. MI has the last victory with a 32-23 win in 2016, but the history of this rivalry has proven that anything can happen on game day. In their loss to Notre Dame, Michigan State was plagued by 3 first half turnovers.

With Michigan at 4-0 and Michigan State at 3-1, it's an important game early in the season. He needs to protect the ball against this elite MI defense which ranks No. 1 in the country. The routine play turned out to be anything but as punter Blake O'Neill failed to handle the snap and Jalen Watts-Jackson grabbed the ball out of the air with his right hand, cradled it to his body and ran it into the end zone to give Michigan State the 27-23 victory. O'Korn produced a solid game for coach Jim Harbaugh, with 270 passing yards and one touchdown.

Sick of being called Michigan's "little brother", Michigan State will keep the game closer than it should be.

It leaves the Colombians and third-placed Chile , who beat Ecuador 2-1, a point clear of Peru and Argentina . Whether the Selecao play a full-strength squad against Chile is a question that needs to be asked, though.

The Wolverines lead the all-time series against the Spartans 69-35-5, but MSU has won seven of the last nine.

"They have gotten the better hand since I've been here", Hurst said.

When it comes down to it, Michigan and Michigan State don't like each other. It ends up being a defensive battle, with the Spartans pulling off the upset on the road.

"Just stay your eyes on the man at all times", Hill said.
