Understandably, Michigan has a bad taste in its mouth after last year’s game against Michigan State.

The Wolverines were stunned by the Spartans 27-24 at Michigan Stadium, meaning Michigan State took home the Paul Bunyan Trophy. It was one of two wins for the Spartans in Mel Tucker’s first year in East Lansing, but it was easily the biggest.

Things are different this year. Both teams are ranked in the top 10 of the AP Top 25 and are undefeated. There’s a lot at stake, which is why Michigan’s “mission” is simple: “Bring Paul home.”

It’s shaping up to be one of the most anticipated games in college football. The atmosphere is sure to be electric — as it usually is — as the teams battle it out for the Paul Bunyan Trophy.

Fans could be in for a running back show as Michigan State’s Kenneth Walker III goes mano-a-mano with Michigan’s two-headed monster of Blake Corum and Hassan Haskins. It only adds to the intrigue of the matchup.

Kickoff is coming up Saturday at noon ET on FOX.
