“College GameDay” will preview its first Big Ten game of the year on Saturday, and it picked an excellent one: the top 10, an undefeated rivalry game between Michigan’s No.6 and No.8 of the State of Michigan.
Rece Davis, Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso, Desmond Howard, David Pollack and Co. will set up in front of Spartan Stadium in East Lansing for the game, which is not only the first-ever undefeated clash of this series, but also has implications for both the Big Ten Championship and the college football playoff races. The winner of Saturday’s game will remain in command of the Big Ten East Division alongside Ohio State – the loser will need help getting to Indianapolis.

This meeting appears to be an elite defensive matchup, as Michigan ranks second nationally in scoring defense (14.3 points per game) and 11th in total defense (299 yards per game). Michigan State is 19th in defensive scorers (18.7 points per game). But the unit gave up more than 400 yards per game, including 285.4 per game in the air.
To that end, look for coach Jim Harbaugh to get quarterback Cade McNamara more involved. He completed 63 percent of his passes for 1,115 yards and five interception touchdowns during the year. On the other side, look for Michigan State coach Mel Tucker to dial in heavy doses of running back Kenneth Gainwell III, who is second in the FBS with 997 rushing yards this season. He also has nine touchowns on the season.
