Michigan's surge pushes stakes even higher for MSU matchup

Posted: Updated:
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -

As well as Michigan is already playing under new coach Jim Harbaugh, it would be easy for the Wolverines to get a little ahead of themselves.

It's all a bit surreal, the idea that Michigan State is undefeated and yet Michigan is favored to beat the Spartans this weekend.

The 12th-ranked Wolverines could try all they wanted to block out the hype, but Michigan's resurgence has raised the stakes for Saturday's game against seventh-ranked Michigan State. This is now much more than just a chance for Harbaugh to spoil the Spartans' unbeaten run. The winner of this matchup -- whoever it is -- becomes a clear contender for a Big Ten title and a spot in college football's playoff.
