There’s nothing like a weekend series against Michigan to bring out the emotion and intensity for Michigan State players. The buzz before practice, during practice and after practice just isn’t the same for any other Big Ten series. Five weeks into the season, it’s finally the first rivalry week, and the Spartans are eager for the challenge of taking on the highly touted No. 2/3 Wolverines. Other than a championship, nothing feels better than a victory over Michigan, and nothing feels worse than a defeat.
