Figure out how to watch Michigan State vs. Michigan on Oct. 7.
Michigan and Michigan State meet up in The Big House on Saturday as the No. 7 Wolverines try to remain perfect on the season.
Michigan is without quarterback Wilton Speight, who coach Jim Harbaugh said will miss multiple weeks with an injury. The Wolverines had a week off after a 28-10 win at Purdue moved them to 4-0. With the backup quarterback going this week, Michigan will rely even more on its defense, which has stifled opposing quarterbacks, allowing them to complete only 41% of their passes.
The Spartans are 3-1, and thanks to a win over Iowa last week, they have already matched their total win total and conference win total from last season. Quarterback Brian Lewerke has been a reliable dual-option to carry the offense through four games. He has 751 passing yards and a team-high 206 rushing yards and eight total touchdowns.
Last year, Michigan picked up its first win in the rivalry since 2012.
