Separated only by a mere 63-mile stretch of highway, the rivalry between Michigan and Michigan State is one of the most intense rivalries in all of college athletics.
The teams first played each other in 1898 and have met 113 times.
The winner of each year’s game receives the Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Trophy, a four-foot wooden statue of a lumberjack that was first presented in 1953 to commemorate Michigan State’s beginning football competition as a member of the Big Ten Conference.
