Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines are starting to turn the tide of their in-state rivalry.

The annual rivalry between the Wolverines and Spartans has been one-sided for much of Mark Dantonio’s time in East Lansing. However, Michigan is trying to make up lost time with back-to-back wins in 2018-19.

Beyond that, the Wolverines have now officially won three of the past four in the series going back to 2016. The win on Saturday was by far the most impressive with Michigan rolling to a 44-10 blowout in the Big House.

You have to go back all the way to 2002 to find a bigger win for Michigan in the series. It is by far the worst loss for Dantonio in the series.

After the game, Harbaugh labeled the victory as a big program win for how it shifted the results in the rivalry. For now, every member of the Wolverines has a winning record against the Spartans:

“It’s a big game, it’s for the state championship,” said Harbaugh. “112th version and now our team, everybody that’s in the locker room has the advantage…it’s a big program win.”

Angelique Chengelis with the Detroit News shared the video of Harbaugh’s comments:

He went on to say that the Wolverines definitely had fun in the win. That comes as no surprise, considering the large margin of victory against a bitter rival in front of your home crowd:
