Week 12 of the college basketball season will be drawing to a close this weekend and the ESPN College GameDay crew will be heading off to East Lansing, Michigan to take in the huge Big Ten contest between the Michigan Wolverines and the Michigan State Spartans.
Both teams are ranked in the Top 25, both have been playing tremendous basketball lately and, most importantly, this is one of the most heated rivalries in college sports.
Michigan comes into the game at 14-4 on the season and 6-0 in the Big Ten. They’ve begun to look every bit the part of the nation runner-up that they are from last season and would love for nothing more than to keep their recent hot streak going against the Spartans.
Michigan State has also playing lights-out ball lately, despite being without one of their main contributors, Adreian Payne. They also have yet to lose a game in the conference and, at number three in the country, would love for nothing more than to get the win here and try to eventually reclaim that number one spot.
And, the College GameDay crew will be there for all the action, beginning live at 11am Saturday on ESPN.
