On Saturday afternoon, the Michigan Wolverines squared off against Michigan State in East Lansing for the Paul Bunyan Trophy. MI wanted to perform well in act two of their revenge tour, but both teams were quiet on the offensive side of the ball before a weather delay stopped the game in the first quarter. Patterson's six-yard connection with Nico Collins in the second quarter was the first touchdown pass Michigan had thrown against Michigan State since the Denard Robinson days in 2011.

When it was all said and done, the Michigan Wolverines defense would leave their mark on this day, holding the Spartans offense to just 94 yards, while the Wolverines dropped 400 yards of offense.

But police insisted they can not open a case against monkeys and instead declared Mr Singh's death an accident. The move has failed to placate the family of the deceased who have approached higher authorities.

Patterson finished the day with 212 yards on 14-of-25 passing and two touchdowns. While Michigan players stayed on the field during MSU's ritual of walking the length of the field arm-in-arm, Wolverines linebacker Devin Bush was seen tearing up and stomping on the Spartan logo at midfield. Running back Karan Higdon racked up 144 yards, his sixth consecutive game with more than 100 yards on the ground, and deep threat Donovan Peoples-Jones broke the game open with a 79-yard touchdown that gave the Wolverines the lead in the third quarter. Both could be back in two weeks against Penn State, but for now, the Wolverines are going to be celebrating this rivalry victory.

MI would keep shutting down the Spartans offense, forcing them to punt for the 11th time and on their final offensive drive, Lewerke was benched for backup quarterback Rocky Lombardi and he would drive MSU down the field before failing on a fourth down conversion. MI gets a bit of reprieve until the regular season finale against Ohio State, with Rutgers and IN on tap before Thanksgiving.
