Last weekend, Michigan State's football players received their rings that celebrate the 2014 season, during which the Spartans won the Cotton Bowl. 

The tribute to the Cotton Bowl victory wasn't the aspect of the jewelry that stood out, though. What stood out was the tribute to MSU's victory against Michigan. The Spartans defeated the Wolverines, 35-11. 

This seemed to upset former Michigan offensive lineman Doug Skene, who played for the Wolverines in the early 1990s. 

Michigan went 3-1 against Michigan State while Skene was in school, so he does have some bragging rights. The current bragging rights in the rivalry belong to the Spartans, though. 

 Michigan and Michigan State are set to play Oct. 17 in Ann Arbor, Mich.
