Michigan, Michigan State point fingers at 'disrespect' after Saturday's rivalry game

Michigan, Michigan State point fingers at 'disrespect' after Saturday's rivalry game

Michigan's players drove a stake into the Spartan Stadium turf prior to losing to Michigan State in 2014.

Play eventually resumed 76 minutes later and the scoreless deadlock remained in effect at the end of the opener.

The Wolverines completely controlled things in the first half, but could only go into the break with a 7-0 lead.

Michigan may not consider Michigan State its chief rival, but that doesn't mean the in-state game doesn't get the blood boiling on both sides.

The Wolverines retook the lead 14-7 when Patterson connected with Donovan Peoples-Jones on a 79-yard scoring strike with 2:24 left in the third.

In the finale, MI took control 21-7 when fullback Ben Mason scored on a 5-yard run with 10:21 to go.

Winovich and the Wolverines will get a week of rest before another big matchup when they host No. 18 Penn State on November 3. The game time has yet to be decided.

Michigan State and Michigan just don't like each other. Kickoff starts at noon.

"Total bush league", Harbaugh said after MI earned a 21-7 victory in East Lansing, according to the Detroit News' Angelique Chengelis.

Michigan's Jim Harbaugh and Michigan State's Mark Dantonio agreed earlier this week that the tone of their in-state rivalry had been sportsmanlike and respectful the past few years. "Dantonio was five yards behind it all smiling".

"That's B.S.", Dantonio said.

Brian Lewerke couldn't get any rhythm going what so ever, as he finished the game going 5-25 for just 66 yards.

MI linebacker Devin Bush responded by jogging to the large Spartan helmet logo at midfield and attempting to kick up as much of the painted grass as possible in a 20-second time span.

The Spartans (4-3, 2-2) struggled to move the ball, getting held to 94 yards and failing to convert any of its 12 third downs.
