SEA LIFE Aquarium carves into Michigan vs. Michigan State

Posted: Updated:

The big In-State Showdown is going down in Ann Arbor, but the SEA Life Michigan Aquarium in Auburn Hills is also joining the fun. 

The cross-state rivalry between the University of Michigan Wolverines and the Michigan State University Spartans is a such a Michigan tradition that even the fish get into it!

SEA LIFE Michigan Aquarium posted a Facebook live to their page showing two aquarists in a pumpkin carving war – Michigan State vs. Michigan style.

In the nearly 20-minute video, the aquarists can be seen underwater carving the MSU and UofM logos into two separate pumpkins in a race as dozens of fish swim around them.

The aquarists thought craving a pumpkin underwater would be a fun twist on their Fish or Treat event which runs from Oct 21 to 31.

The carved pumpkins will remain in the Ocean Tank for guests to see until next round of pumpkins are craved or until the fish pick at them.

Who won? Check out the video to find out.
