Michigan State 28, Michigan 14: Your comprehensive guide to our coverage

Battered and bruised. Body and ego.
A Michigan football team that has had "physicality" preached to it since Brady Hoke took over the program in January was out-manned at Spartan Stadium on Saturday. They were beaten in ways other than the final score, which reads Michigan State 28, Michigan 14.
"(Mark Dantonio) outcoached us and (Michigan State) outplayed us, and we have to do a much better job in a lot of different ways," Hoke said.
Now, we wait to see if this Wolverines team follows an oh-so-familiar pattern.
Michigan entered their past two games against Michigan State 9-0. They finished those seasons 3-13. They were 6-0 Saturday morning, but limped out of East Lansing with their first loss after missing out on late opportunities to climb back into the game.
Instead, Michigan State has won four straight in the rivalry for the first time since 1959-62 and sit alone atop the Big Ten's Legends Division standings.
