The nation will be watching East Lansing this weekend.

Unless you have been hiding inside away from the whole world, you know that there is a huge game coming up on Saturday. Number 8 Michigan State University will host Number 6 University of Michigan for the game of the year this weekend. Both teams are undefeated and the rivalry is at an all-time high.

This game is so important and so huge that ESPN's 'College Gameday' will be live in East Lansing to cover it. Get ready for all of ESPN's analysts to be on hand including Rece Davis, Lee Corso, David Pollack, Kirk Herbstreit, and Desmond Howard for the big pregame show. The game will also be broadcast live on FOX.


Saturday will mark the ninth time that Michigan State University has been the host of ESPN's 'College Gameday.' The last show was broadcast back on September 12th, 2015 when the Spartans beat Oregon in a 31-28 victory.

The thing that makes this edition of ESPN's 'College Gameday' so special is that it will be the first edition to feature the Battle for the Paul Bunyan trophy since October 17th, 2015. The Spartans pulled off the victory that day in a 27-23 win over the Wolverines. Which is still a very sensitive subject to every Wolverine on the planet.

We are in for an incredible game this weekend. Both teams are 7-0 and are ready. I can't wait and am anticipating losing my voice this weekend because of this game. Go blue!!!
