The first time Michigan State and Michigan played in November, it was all about the rivalry. The last time the Spartans and Wolverines got together, which was three weeks ago, it was about positioning in the Big Ten standings, and, of course, with the rivalry still there simmering as a subplot. This weekend, MSU and U-M are playing for the 5th and 6th times – and maybe even a 7th – this season. And the stakes are so much higher.
