YOUR MICHIGAN STATE SPARTANS at the MICHIGAN WOLVERINES

12:00 PM EASTERN, SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 22ND, 2014

CRISLER ARENA, ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN

TV: CBS

RADIO: SPARTAN SPORTS NETWORK

I doubt it needs to be said, but here it goes anyway -- this game is huge. Not just in the context of the Michigan State-Michigan rivalry, but in terms of Big Ten positioning. If the Spartans win they'll take a 1 game lead on Michigan and a 2.5 game lead on Wisconsin. If the Spartans lose...well, let's not think about that, but to get a share of the title then the Spartans would most likely need to win all their remaining games (Illinois, Iowa, at Ohio State) while hoping the Wolverines slip among one of at Purdue, Minnesota, at Illinois, and Indiana. It's not hard to see why today is crucial.

This is the game thread. We have three rules here -- no links to illegal game streams, no racial, ethnic, or homosexual slurs, and be cool to each other (aka don't feed the trolls -- we know this game attracts them like no other, so we're being extra vigilant today.)

GO GREEN, GO WHITE, BEAT MICHIGAN.
