Michigan players recently sat down to discuss using the bye week to prepare for the Week 9 tilt with Michigan State.

The Wolverines had 4 days of practice during their bye week as they seek to remain perfect and defend their B1G Championship from 2021 while booking a 2nd straight appearance in the College Football Playoff. While their record is currently perfect, there are always things to improve.

“We try to be better, so we won’t make the same mistakes in these upcoming games,” said defensive back Gemon Green.

Offensive lineman Trevor Keegan’s focus was his preparation off the field.

“Now that I’m older, my body’s starting to hurt a little bit more than it used to, but just taking care of my body, getting the nutrition and sleep that I need to rejuvenate for the last half of the season,” he said.

The Spartans will also be well-rested for the in-state clash, as they are on a bye in Week 8 as well.

The Wolverines are 4-0 in B1G play and 7-0 overall. The Spartans are 1-3 in B1G play and 3-4 overall. The Wolverines, meanwhile, hope to end their 2-game losing streak against the Spartans.
