So, there’s some game happening this weekend.

No. 7 Michigan State is facing No. 12 Michigan, and Michigan is favored to win this game.

“For the first time in many, many years, the nation will be watching this game,” says Michigan Radio sports commentator John U. Bacon.

Bacon says no one saw this type of game coming earlier this year, when Michigan wasn’t expected to do much.

“This has to go down, so far, as one of the better coaching jobs I’ve seen from Jim Harbaugh, of course. They’re now 5 and 1. Now across the field, you’ve also got one of the best coaching jobs I’ve seen – Mark Dantonio.”

Under Dantonio, Michigan State has turned into a winning program, and Dantonio has “done more with less,” according to Bacon.  

Listen to Bacon’s prediction for the game below:
