Michigan vs. Michigan State just kicked off, and if you thought this year’s version of the rivalry contest wouldn’t be intense, think again. The two teams were going at it two hours before kickoff.This year’s game is at Michigan State, but it doesn’t look like the College GameDay staff is factoring that into their projected outcome.Everyone on College GameDay’s staff – including guest picker Drew Bledsoe – thinks that Michigan is going to prevail.That wouldn’t be a shock, but rivalry games never go as predicted. It wouldn’t be a huge surprise if the Spartans pulled off a win at home.#CollegeGameDay guys (and Drew Bledsoe) take @UMichFootball across the board. pic.twitter.com/5PA5fTlJpY— Mike Foss (@MikeFossWXYZ) October 20, 2018Michigan, with just one loss (to Notre Dame) is still alive when it comes to the College Football Playoff race. The Wolverines need to win on Saturday to keep that a reality.Michigan State, meanwhile, is 4-2 with an outside shot at winning the Big Ten East. They have plenty of motivation as well.Michigan vs. Michigan State is currently airing on FOX.
