Michigan State Spartans Conference
While the in-state rivalry game with the Michigan Wolverines is important to Michigan State and its fans, the Paul Bunyan-Governor of Michigan Trophy takes a backseat to its Notre Dame rivalry. Despite Notre Dame leading the series 31-26-1, MSU won 34-31 in 2010 with a fake field goal in the fourth quarter.
The most notable game in the series is the 1966 matchup known as the "Game of the Century." Michigan State entered the game ranked second in the nation, just behind Notre Dame. After a defensive contest, both teams left the field in a 10-10 tie.
