East Lansing takes on ESPN College Gameday and other pre-game shows
The Michigan State Spartans defeated the Michigan Wolverines in a fierce battle at East Lansing on Saturday. The bitter rivalry game drew fans from both teams and major network coverage from ESPN College Gameday and Fox Big Noon Kickoff.
Many fans woke up early for the chance to see the College Gameday show and see their sign airing on television, including Baylor Wiggins and Nick Began, Kinesiology and Junior Business at the University of Michigan.
Even though Wiggins is from Oregon, he could have sensed the hatred of this rivalry from the moment he stepped onto campus.
“I’m actually from Oregon so I didn’t grow up with this rivalry like a lot of people, but all I’ll say is I sort of figured it out pretty quickly even though I didn’t. not from a state where there’s a pretty big hate, “Wiggins said. Despite that hatred, he didn’t expect Michigan to dominate.” I’ll give respect where it’s due. I think it will be a close game all the time. “
At the front of the College Gameday line was Colton Wood, a former MSU student, who had been camping since midnight.
“It’s like Christmas morning, you know I’ve never been so excited for a game in a while, you only know two undefeated teams, especially with the rivalry, it means a lot, it’s gonna be really interesting , the atmosphere is going to be amazing, ”said Bois. “As far as game day and everything else, I don’t think Fox and ESPN have come to two things, so the world is watching us right now, so hopefully Michigan State comes out and l ‘will prevail. “
Cameron Sjoberg, an MSU political science junior, was also on the front line to enter the College Gameday fan pit line and gave his opinion on the game.
“For us, it’s a big deal. I don’t know about Michigan fans, maybe they care more about Ohio State, but for us it’s a big deal, ”Sjoberg said. “This game in particular, I think it’s a once in a lifetime game, both 7-0, both in the top 10, College Gameday ahead is also a once in a lifetime opportunity. I think it’s amazing. I wouldn’t have stayed awake all night and I wouldn’t have arrived here at 2:30 (a.m.) if it hadn’t been the case. “
Fans were convinced their team would be the one to emerge victorious on Saturday, like Began who thought it would be a blowout.
“I’ve got Michigan at least 17 today, we’re going to bottle up Kenneth Walker and Blake Corum is going to go wild and JJ McCarthy is going to see some serious playing time today. Michigan wins by a ton, ”he predicted.
Sidney Randolph, a second year business student at U of M was not so confident.
“Honestly, I’m a little worried about the game. The state of Michigan is pretty good right now. We’re both undefeated, but I also have a feeling we’re both not as good as our records say, but Michigan State is a pretty good team, they’re 7-0, which is why. is really good at the moment, and it should be a very good game … I don’t know if we are going to win, ”he said.
Despite all the talk, Michigan State handed Michigan its first loss of the season and remains undefeated as it heads into Week 10 of the college football season.
