Cluj 2-0 Celtic: Hoops end Europa League group stage with defeat in Romania

The Michigan–Michigan State football rivalry is an American college football rivalry between the University of Michigan Wolverines and Michigan State University Spartans.

Since 1953, the winner of every calendar year’s game has received the Paul Bunyan Trophy. The teams first played in 1898 and have met almost every year since 1910 (exceptions in 1943 and 1944). 44 of those first 50 games were played in Ann Arbor, but since then, U of M and MSU have played 30 home games against every other. The contest became a conference rivalry with Michigan State’s entrance into the Big Ten Conference in 1950.
The teams have fulfilled 111 occasions with Michigan winning 70 games, Michigan State winning 36 games, and five matches ending with the score tied. Michigan dominated the show for the first half century, compiling a 33–6–3 record in 1898 to 1949. The tide shifted to Michigan State in the 1950s and 1960s, as the Spartans under head coach Biggie Munn and Duffy Daugherty compiled a 14–4–2 album in 1950 to 1969. The tide then changed back to the Wolverines as Michigan compiled a 30–8 album against the Spartans from 1970 to 2007. Since 2008, Michigan State has dominated the series with an 8–3 album.
Michigan State’s longest winning streak against Michigan is four matches. Michigan’s longest winning streak from Michigan State is 14 games.
