Now that MSU has won the B1G Conference 2013 Championship, let's update our review of the football rivalry between Michigan State and Michigan. Here's a look at the last ten years of the series:

Last 10 Football Games Between MSU and UM
  • Ten Game Record = MSU 5, UM 5
  • Non-Overtime Record = MSU 4, UM 3
  • Total Points = MSU 267, UM 228 (MSU + 39)

  • MSU TEN YEAR TOTAL = 77-50 (.606)
  • Current Bowl Games in a row = 7
  • Current Bowl Win Streak = 2
  • Biggest Bowl Win Streak = 2
  • Six bowl games played, two wins
  • League Championships = 2
  • Division Titles = 2

  • UM TEN YEAR TOTAL = 77-48 (.616)
  • Current Bowl Games in a row = 4
  • Current Bowl Win Streak = 0
  • Biggest Bowl Win Streak = 1
  • Eight bowl games played, two wins
  • League Championships = 1
  • Division Titles = 0

BOTTOM LINE:  Michigan State has a better bowl streak in progress, as well as a better bowl-win streak. MSU has "measured up" by winning more league championships and division titles over the last decade. The series is tied in wins/losses, and the Spartans lead in points scored. The overall game record of the two teams is extremely close, with less than two games separation over 10 seasons, a difference of only one percentage-point (62% to 61%).
