Michigan State fans have succeeded in vandalizing the block M in the center of intrastate rival Michigan's campus, painting the brass letter Spartan green and also adding "S-U" for good measure.

Michigan and Michigan State face off in East Lansing on Saturday, and the two fanbases have made a tradition of attempting to deface landmarks on their rival's campus, with the Wolverines once adding maize and blue flourishes to the Spartan statue at MSU.
