Analysts across the nation are pretty much split on that question, but most agree it’s going to be a close one Saturday in Ann Arbor (3:30 p.m., ESPN).
Even though Michigan has been the most impressive of the two teams up to this point, both teams will be playing the best opponent they have faced all season. If anyone who has watched MSU during the Mark Dantonio era knows that being the underdog has played to their advantage. Playing with a chip on their shoulder is just the way they like it. I think the Spartans, though banged up, will play their best game of the season. The U of M game is one that has been a marked game for the Spartans under Dantonio.
