Before what is sure to be an extra emotional rivalry game, Michigan and Michigan State players are sharing the same message.

Players from both teams are warming up in “Spartan strong” shirts ahead of Saturday night’s basketball game.

Michigan has been active in honoring Michigan State after the tragic shooting on MSU campus earlier this week. The Wolverines announced Spartan-logo helmet decals.

On Friday, players from each school’s baseball team joined together in a moment of prayer.

The U-M student section already gave Tom Izzo’s Spartans a standing ovation.

Saturday’s basketball game is set for 8 p.m. ET.
