Ex-Michigan, Michigan State Players Make Friendly Bet To Raise Money For Charity

No. 12 Michigan and No. 7 Michigan State will face off in Ann Arbor on Saturday, but two former players are already going head-to-head this week for a good cause.

Former Spartan running back T.J. Duckett and ex-Michigan safety Cato June have teamed up to form the House Divided Challenge. The pair have challenged each other to see who can raise more money for charity, with the loser having to wear his rival's colors and post a picture on social media.

Duckett is raising money for his charity, New World Flood, while June is supporting the Jaguar Football Club. Both men are touting their causes on Twitter.

This is awesome stuff from Duckett and June and adds a heartwarming layer to a resurgent rivalry.
