The highly anticipated Michigan vs. Michigan State will kick off at 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 17 at Michigan Stadium.
The network will be announced next week, likely depending on the result of the Michigan-Northwestern game. If the Wolverines win, there’s a chance for a larger national audience with two Top 15 teams.
With the 5-0 Spartans ranked No. 4 in the Associated Press poll and the 4-1 Wolverines at No. 18, this has the potential to be the highest-ranked matchup in years.
U-M was No. 23 and MSU was No. 24 in 2013 — MSU’s 29-6 win in East Lansing — but the last time the two were both ranked in the Top 20 was 2010 when U-M was 18 and MSU 17. The Spartans also won that game, 34-17.
ABC, ESPN or ESPN2 will televise Michigan State’s Oct. 17 game at Michigan, with kickoff set for 3:30 pm ET. (TV network TBD after Oct. 10).
