1:00 pm ET, ABC Sports
Michigan Stadium - Ann Arbor, Michigan

Michigan, who upset visiting Michigan State last weekend has re-entered the national rankings at No. 21/No. 24. Minnesota is coming off a 44-14 loss at the hands of Penn State in State College last weekend, and is hoping to rebound back into the national mix. The two teams went in opposite directions last week, but both will be looking to walk out of Michigan Stadium with a win on Saturday.

The teams are competing for the Little Brown Jug in one of the conference's oldest trophy games. Minnesota will be trying to reclaim the trophy that for the first time since 1986, with Michigan winning 16 straight games against the Gophers, and holding a 63-21-3 overall advantage in the trophy series. Last season, a Chad Henne touchdown pass to Tyler Ecker with just over two minutes remaining gave Michigan the 27-24 victory at home.


The game on Saturday will be televised on ABC Sports beginning at 1:00 pm ET.
