By this point, it is common knowledge that MSU has not lost to UM in football or basketball since November 3, 2007. On July 30, 2010, that streak reached 1,000 days, which marked only the 5th time either school has had a streak of that length against the other since MSU joined the Big 10 in 1953. The other 4 streaks are as follows (in order of length - the school holding the streak is in parentheses):
1,127 Days: 1/11/75 to 2/11/78 (UM)
1,092 Days: 10/13/62 to 10/9/65 (UM)
1,090 Days: 3/4/57 to 2/27/60 (MSU)
1,043 Days: 3/4/72 to 1/11/75 (UM)
At the time of this year's football game, MSU's streak had reached 1,071 days. After MSU's win to keep the streak alive, the next matchup is a basketball game on January 27, 2011. By that point, the streak will be at 1,182 days, well past the previous record. In fact, MSU fans can circle December 4 on their calendars, as that will be the day that the new record is established at 1,128 days.
And hopefully we'll be streaking for much longer...
