Dantonio's Continued Success Over Michigan

Since taking the reins as head coach of Michigan State, Mark Dantonio understood he would be judged by his team's success against rival Michigan. This year's 23-point win over the Wolverines was the largest margin of victory in the series since the Spartans won 34-0 in 1967.

Now, after seven games since taking over the Spartans, Dantonio has his team sitting with a 5-2 mark against the programs biggest rival with many feeling the tide has turned between the two teams with the Spartans heading in a direction to continue winning more than losing to the Wolverines.
