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.
In the wake of this week's horrific tragedy in East Lansing, some of our Michigan teams will wear special helmet decals to honor the victims at Michigan State.

On Friday, players from each school’s baseball team joined together in a moment of prayer.
A friend sent me this picture. Michigan and Michigan State players joined together on the field to take a knee before their game at Sloan Park in Arizona to pray for the victims of the shooting that took place on Michigan State’s campus. pic.twitter.com/YJ5IuAc1Ov

The U-M student section already gave Tom Izzo’s Spartans a standing ovation.
Michigan student section the Maize Rage gives the MSU basketball team a standing ovation and applauds as the Spartans take the court with a little under 30 minutes before tipoff. Very classy gesture in a night expected to be filled with them from U-M.
