A Michigan vs. Michigan State NCAA title game?

It’s interesting to think about the possibility of a Michigan State vs. Michigan national championship game in AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Big Ten teams stare down adversity & advance

It was exhilarating. It was exhausting. And it may end up being a very memorable win for Wisconsin.
