The Michigan State Spartans welcome the No. 8 (CFP), No. 11 (AP) and No. 13 (Coaches Poll) ranked Northwestern Wildcats to East Lansing tomorrow for their annual cross-division showdown. The Wildcats are riding high after knocking off Wisconsin last week, and will clinch at least a share of the West Division title with a win this week. Hoping to finally find their second win of the season after last week’s game at Maryland was canceled are the Spartans. This might be an ugly game circa 2016, or it may be a more classic defensive showdown between the two programs. Either way, Spartans fans are sure hoping for a big upset tomorrow.

The game was originally set to air on ESPN2, but has since been moved to ESPN.
