2015 Michigan gameday #7: vs. Michigan State

The leaves are changing colors and falling.  The sky is clouding up and the temperature is most definitely on the decline.  Yep--it's officially football weather©, and right on time for one of Michigan's bigger games of the season.
The 5-1 Wolverines have a ton of momentum on their side as they welcome Mark D'Antonio and the Michigan State Early Prison Release Program Spartans, an undefeated squad that has valiantly dispatched the likes of Purdue and Rutgers recently.

But of course the Spartans will have focused almost exclusively on this game all year, so nothing's a given.  Still, I'm hopeful we see a lot of this today:
Jim Harbaugh has effected an amazing turnaround halfway through his first year as head coach, and even if he won't let any reporters catching him saying it, he knows it's time to restore the Natural Order of Things that has seen Michigan absolutely own this "rivalry" 68-34-5.  The Wolverines have gone just 1-6 in the last seven, but I have a feeling Harbaugh will turn that number on its head very soon.  For this afternoon, let's just focus on returning to the status quo of beating State at least two-thirds of the time.
