MADISON, Wis. - Michigan State vs. Wisconsin lacks the history of Michigan-Ohio State.
When it comes to Big Ten rivalries, however, there's none better than the Spartans vs. the Badgers. Not recently, anyway.
No teams have been better in the Big Ten over the last three years than Wisconsin (6-2, 3-1 Big Ten) and Michigan State (4-4, 1-3). The Badgers have won 17 conference games since 2010, with Michigan State second with 15 wins. They've had a hand in the last two Big Ten titles.
The last six games between Michigan State and Wisconsin have been decided by a grand total of 31 points
Unlike the last three meetings, Saturday's game at Wisconsin is unlikely to have any wide-ranging impact. Both teams are trailing in their divisions.
