Much is on the line for the Spartans as they look to turn their season around with a fifth consecutive victory over the Wolverines. Michigan State dressed 69 players for the Michigan game. Included is tight end Dion Sims who missed last week's Iowa game and part of the Indiana game.
In warm-ups Sims has looked sharp running routes and it will be interesting to see how many reps he'll take in this big game.
As stated in The Opening the Spartans are wearing new helmets that have a major shine to them from the press box. As the team huddled before entering the locker room it looked almost like a Christmas ornament.
Weather with about 32 minutes before kickoff is dry with clouds and a brisk wind blowing across the field.
