Michigan State building momentum going into Michigan matchup

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State is building momentum with five straight wins going into Saturday’s game against rival Michigan at the Breslin Center. After hosting Penn State on Wednesday night, the Wolverines will have one fewer day to prepare for the game. Izzo didn’t want to talk about Michigan shortly after beating Nebraska 74-56 on Tuesday night.  Coaches, players and fans from both sides of the rivalry hope the first of two matchups with the basketball teams is civil after a melee in the Michigan Stadium tunnel two months ago led to criminal charges and punishment from the Big Ten.
