Tonight in East Lansing the control of the B1G is up for grabs. If UM wins, they will control how the rest of the season plays out. Same goes for MSU, however, a game in Ann Arbor becomes huge for MSU as that would likely still be in the way between them and the outright championship.
Students have been camping outside since early this morning for the best seats available in the IZZONE and there will be a “White Out” in effect (Thanks to the Original Winnipeg Jets for starting that tradition) and I’m sure that the atmosphere will be crazy and a great game is in store for everyone watching and playing.
Travis Trice has been ruled out with “concussion like symptoms” which is a way to avoid having to pass too many concussion tests to get back on the court quicker. Jordan Morgan is questionable with an ankle injury but even if he plays, not much should be expected of him as Derrik Nix and Adrian Payne are both playing aw well as they have been expect John Beilein to only use the most effective players to stop them.
A late start at 9pm local time due to ESPN but don’t expect that to effect either team as this is the biggest game in this rivalry in years and with total control in the conference at stake, expect it to go down to the wire with a final shot most likely being the deciding points.
