Football Saturday to those who know the Michigan athlet-
ic tradition, is an institution urnparalleled in excitement and
spirit, From the action on the tield to the flying marshmal-
lows in the stands, the Big House becomes the center of
life in Ann Arbor each fall,~ every time the Wolverines take
the field.
-- from the first Football Saturday, Sept. 20, 1997
This week, Football Satu~ay is moving northwest, to East
Lansing. For roughly three hours, Spartan Stadium will be
the center of the world, or at least the state. Michigan

Alhhough there wNill be almost no actu-
1! ;,oil on1the Spartain Stadlitum carpet,
today' s matchup w ith the l1th-ranked
Spartan's might be the dirtiest game the
Miichigan foo),tball team has played in all
~~l's lwas awar out there," said
junior defensive end Jake Etysinger. "I
don't want to say it's a dirty game, but
there's a lot of talk in the trenches."
There's been plenty of talk already.
This is the highest the two teams have
been ranked in the week before the game
since 1961. That year wtas also the last
time both teams wecre undefeated - the
2-0 Spartans wecnt 3-0 and made the
Wolverines 2-1 after their 28-0 win at
Michigan Stadium.
Never before have both teams been 5-
0 for this game. Spartans coach Nick
Saban said he hopes Saturday's game can
be a watershed moment in the rivalry -
a chance to place his program alongside
Michigan's in the national spotlight.
To that end. Saban has trid to squelch
some talk. He held players back from
their usual appearances at Monday's
press conference. This could be his
biggest game as coach in East Lansing
and he doesn't seem to be taking chances
with it.
It's the hyper-bowl already, and the
game is three days away. But even the
excitable Ian Gold pointed out that this
game could be bigger, right?
"It could," the senior linebacker "It
could," the senior linebacker said. "We
could be 9-0; we could be No I and No.2
in the country'
Anid with all the media attention -
including the first East Lansing visit
from ESPN's GameDay crew since
1997's Michigan-Michigan State game
-- Saban may get his wish. He has said
he hopes that the two programs don't
need to succeed at each other's expense.
He -- and nearly everyone else associ-
ated with this game - would like today's

No.

game to be more than a Big-State-
School-rumbles-with-ag-School
matchup, a la TexasTexas A&M, or
Iowa-Iowa State. The way both teams
have loed this season, it has the poten-
tial to transcend those perceptions, the
way Alabama-Auburn has.
"'The country may not see it that way,
but we do;' Gold said.
And old, who sees it from a far clos-
er level than the media, said it means
more than juist national recognition.
"To me, it means a lot,' the Belleville
native said. "Last year,!I didn't get to play
in this game. I want to go out with a win.
I don't want to hear You lost to State in
your last game,.".
None of the seniors wan that. And
none of the underclassmen - on whose
shouilers that burden is -want to let
them dwn.
That goes for both teams, which may
explain why there's extra woofing - and
more - between players.

, Oh ny God, mry first Michigan State
game, I almost wras taken off on a stretch-
er," gold said, recalling an incident on
special teams. Gold was running don-
field to cover a kick, until...
"Ire just leveled me' Gold said of his
anonymous assailant. "l just laid there for
about five seconds, and I started to think
'Well, this is going to be on film. And
Coach Carr is going to notice. And I'll
get pointed out in front of the whole
defense."
Gold has learned from that first, brutal
introduction to this rivalry. Now he and
his defensive teammates are looking for-
ward to shauing their knowledge with
some young Spartans, in particular, true
freshman tailback and linebacker TI:.
Duckett, a fellow in-stater from
Kalamazoo.
"He's a freshman and he doesn't have
too mudh experience~, so we're looking to
break himt into Big Ten football;' Gold
said.

DEFENSE:
After shedding the 'suspect' label

Michigan secondary doesn't have
much left to prove. Still, Spartan
quarterback Bill Burke will throw
often, especially once Michigan State
coach Nick Saban realizes that his
running game is ineffective.
