This installment of the Michigan vs. Michigan State rivalry, the battle for the Paul Bunyan Trophy, is shaping up to be a historic one.

Both teams (Michigan at No. 6 and Michigan State at No. 8) are ranked well inside the top-10 and both teams are also a perfect 7-0. There have been some important games in this rivalry before, but few with the potential consequences of the 114th meeting between the two schools.

For starters, it’s the first time since 1964 that both teams enter the matchup ranked inside the top-10. The 7-0 start is also the best of Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh’s career at his alma mater, though the Wolverines have yet to play a ranked opponent this season.

BENDER: Harbaugh’s biggest test is ahead of him against Michigan State

Harbaugh, however, has struggled against top-10 teams over the course of his tenure, going just 2-12 against top-10 teams while at Michigan.

Michigan State won last year’s meeting of the rivalry, knocking off then-No. 13 Michigan in Ann Arbor as 24.5 point underdogs. It marked the first win of the Mel Tucker era at Michigan State and was one of just two wins last year for the Spartans, who have quickly turned things around in 2021.

One team’s going to leave Saturday’s game with the first loss of their season. But for the winner, a path to the College Football Playoff gets that much more real and that much closer.

Here’s how to catch this marquee Big Ten game in action.
