The Michigan State Spartans were the opponent that gave Rutgers its first Big Ten win since 2017, with the Scarlet Knights snapping their 21-game conference losing streak last week in East Lansing behind a decisive 38-27 win. Now, the Spartans have the challenge of facing No. 13 Michigan, who defeated No. 21 Minnesota in its season opener. Michigan has won three of the last four games in the series, including a 44-10 victory in Ann Arbor last season.
