Michigan and Michigan State will face each other this weekend in the rivalry’s first night game. That’s right. The game in Ann Arbor on Saturday night will be the first nighttime meeting between these two football teams who have been playing each other since 1898. While it would be fascinating to run down all 109 meetings, let’s take a quick look back at just the past five. Michigan snapped a four-game losing streak against the Spartans in what can be described as a defensive-minded game in Ann Arbor. Or you could describe it as ugly, but a win is a win and Michigan needed one badly against their in-state rival.
Michigan State responded the next year. Connor Cook threw for a touchdown and ran for one, but this game belonged to Michigan State’s defense, which at the time solidified its spot among the nation’s best with an overwhelming performance on a rainy afternoon at Spartan Stadium.
This was Michigan State’s most lopsided win in the series since 1967. They held Michigan to minus-48 yards rushing, the worst output in the Ann Arbor program’s history. Michigan’s previous low point for rushing was in 1962, when the Wolverines were held to minus-46 yards by Minnesota.
