The Michigan State Spartans haven't been to the Rose Bowl since 1988 and will have to get through Wisconsin for a second time this season to get there.
The Spartans defeated the Badgers once already this season, back in October, when Michigan State won on a tipped hail mary as time expired in East Lansing. The following week, Wisconsin lost again on a hail mary to Ohio State, but defeated its next four opponents by an average of 31 points.
After Michigan State's thrilling win over Wisconsin, they put up a stinker against Nebraska the next week before rattling off four straight wins themselves by a difference of over three touchdowns.
This one should be a doozie, so here's all the information you'll need going into the game that will determine this year's Big Ten Rose Bowl participant:
Location: Lucas Oil Stadium (turf); Indianapolis, Indiana
When: Saturday, Dec. 3 at 8:17 p.m. ET
Announcers: Gus Johnson, Charles Davis, Tim Brewster, Dhani Jones
Radio stream: ESPN Radio 1070 (Wisconsin); WXYT 97.1 FM, 1270 AM (Michigan State)
Betting Line: Wisconsin (-10)
