  • Michigan State vs Michigan Live Stream: College Football Online

The first prime-time matchup between bitter rivals Michigan and Michigan State drew the weekend's best TV ratings for college football, dominated by the metro Detroit numbers.

The weather conditions may be to blame for some of Michigan's offensive problems Saturday.

On a stormy night in Ann Arbor, Michigan State upset No. 7 Michigan 14-10, handing the Wolverines their first loss of the season.

We expect Michigan to squeak out a win, but we like Michigan State against a double-digit spread.

Up next: The University of MI (4-1, 1-1 Big Ten) is at IN at noon Saturday on ABC. MI needed a miracle of its own on Saturday to beat the Spartans, but it wasn't to be. Saturday will be the first meeting between the schools since 2013 when Michigan State beat Minnesota 14-3 in East Lansing, Mich.

And a bobbled snap once again provided the Spartans with a memorable play. Michigan's Karan Higdon ran for 5.4 yards per carry, but was handed the ball just 12 times. After quarterback Jon Wassink hit Donnie Ernsberger for a 14-yard touchdown to tie the game at 38, Ernsberger's sister ran onto the field and celebrated with her brother in the end zone before being escorted off. It fell to the ground incomplete, ending any hopes of a MI miracle.

Though this season's MI team again has a dominant defense, the offense has struggled. They've been doing that since 2007, and that's why Michigan State is 8-3 in games involving the Paul Bunyan Trophy under Dantonio.

After losing a fumble on its first second-half possession, MI finally got on the board with a touchdown, taking advantage of good field position as Khalid Hill ran it in for a one-yard score with 8:09 left.

Then the Skies opened and the rain started coming down in buckets for the rest of the game. Three of those turnovers came via John O'Korn interceptions as he looked lost for most of the evening. That gave the Spartans 12 for this season, one more than last year's total. Saturday night continued the latter theme.

Prior to the injury, the original starting Michigan QB had completed 54.3 percent of his passes on the season for 581 yards and three touchdowns prior to the injury. Brian Lewerke was uninspiring at quarterback, going 11-of-22 for 94 yards and a touchdown. That's meant 2013 MI rushing for negative-48 yards against the Spartans, but in 2017, it meant MSU taking a 14-3 lead before the bottom fell out, then allowing one 33-yard touchdown drive while just standing on the brake pedal the rest of the way. Even as Michigan took a tumble, Michigan State got enough respect from its win to earn a spot at No. 21. MI imploded in the game, losing five turnovers to the Spartans. In the recent era of the rivalry, Michigan State has played well against Michigan. It's not there yet.
