[tps_header]The big game between the Michigan Wolverines and the Michigan State Spartans is nearly upon us and everyone is excited about what should be a very good game.
These five areas will be important for a Michigan victory in this intense rivalry matchup.[/tps_header]
[tps_title]1) The Trenches: UM Defensive line vs. MSU Offensive line[/tps_title]
There’s no question that the Michigan defense has been absolutely dominant this season and everything begins with controlling the line of scrimmage. Defensive line coach Greg Mattison has the Wolverines in top form. It’s a veteran group led by Chris Wormley, Willie Henry, Ryan Glasgow, and Maurice Hurst. With Michigan State nursing injuries to important players like Jack Conklin and Jack Allen, Michigan could make it a very long day for Connor Cook and the Spartan offense.
