An undefeated Michigan State starts the process of getting ready for rival Michigan with a lot of questions.

Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio is 6-2 against Michigan since taking over the Spartans program. Saturday afternoon Dantonio will take the Spartans to “The Big House” looking to stay undefeated and knock down the rising Wolverines. What might stand in the Spartans way of staying perfect?

The Michigan State vs. Michigan rivalry has been rekindled since the hiring of Jim Harbaugh to try and work his magic and bring the Wolverines back to the top of the college football world.

Since Mark Dantonio became head coach, Michigan State has seen a dominance over their instate rivals going 6-2 since the 2007 season.

The Spartans will head into Michigan Stadium on Saturday afternoon with a 6-0 record and battered, bruised and being held together with lots of athletic tape.

Are the Spartans too banged up to have a legitimate chance of slowing down the momentum Harbaugh has brought to the program?
