Upset alert: No. 13 Michigan trailing rival Spartans at halftime
What a difference a week makes.
In Week 1, it was Michigan State struggling heavily to Rutgers while Michigan ran all over Minnesota in a blowout win. That win bumped the Wolverines to No. 13 on the AP Poll with Michigan State unranked after the ugly loss.
Entering Week 2, the Wolverines were huge favorites with some sportsbooks marking Michigan State as a 24.5-point underdog for the rivalry game. With one half in the books, that is not how things have turned out.
Heading into the break, it is the Spartans that are carrying a 14-10 lead over the Wolverines. It has been a back-and-forth affair to this point, so fans should expect plenty of action in the second half. Still, not many people expected the game to be close at any point, much less at halftime.
Michigan State quarterback Rocky Lombardi was the big star of the first half with two touchdowns. Can he help guide the Spartans to an upset win, or will the Wolverines battle back?
