Mark Dantonio is 7-2 against Michigan since taking over the reigns of the Michigan State Spartans football program. In his 10th season his overall record of 89-38 is pretty impressive. However, 7 games into the 2016 campaign and the Spartans remain winless against the Big 10. The numbers would lead one to believe that they will remain winless following their match-up with the Wolverines this Saturday at noon. The Spartans do, though, currently have possession of the Paul Bunyan trophy and hold a three-game winning streak against Michigan, including a last minute victory in last season’s contest that Spartan fans defend as “never giving up” and Wolverines faithful have dubbed a fluke.
Regardless of past season battles or current season struggles, MSU will attempt to beat U of M for the fourth time in a row, and the eighth time in Mark Dantonio’s tenure. Pregame coverage of the MSU announce crew begins at 11:00 on ESPN 101.9 FM. The U of M team can be heard on WKHM 970 AM / 101.5 FM with their pregame also starting at 11:00.
