The game between the Wolverines and the Spartans is so big that both ESPN College GameDay and FOX’s Big Noon Kickoff will be in attendance. College GameDay has announced comedian and actor Ken Jeong as the guest picker for the weekend.
The Wolverines and Spartans are facing off against each other while both teams are ranked in the top 10 for the 1st time since 1964. Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh has never lost in East Lansing.
The Spartans came into the Big House last season and knocked off the Wolverines 27-24.
Michigan will look to reclaim Paul Bunyan tomorrow at Spartan Stadium at noon ET on FOX.
