Michigan-Michigan State is one of the highlights of tomorrow's college football slate. The Wolverines are back in the top 10 and Michigan State is coming off a big win over Penn State.

The Spartans have controlled this rivalry recently, and would like nothing more than to ruin Michigan's season. A loss in East Lansing would likely knock the Wolverines out of the College Football Playoff hunt and put their Big Ten East quest on the ropes.

Expect a hard-fought, classic Big Ten game. Don't be surprised if a crazy play or two changes the outcome like it has in recent years.

CBS Sports' Tom Fornelli has unveiled his prediction for this game. He is taking the Maize and Blue.

These two teams have stout defenses and offenses that never seem to be in a hurry to score points or run plays. Combine that with a forecast currently calling for high winds in East Lansing, Michigan, and it's not going to be easy to find points on Saturday.

Michigan 20, Michigan State 13

Michigan and Michigan State will kick off tomorrow at noon ET.

FOX will broadcast the action.
