The Michigan State trolling of Michigan has already begun.

Following the Spartan's huge upset win against No. 13 Michigan on Saturday, the team's official Twitter account posted a hilarious video highlighting the victory.

The video begins with flashing tweets from Michigan State haters saying the Spartans had no chance against Michigan on Saturday. Despite all the naysayers, the heavy underdogs pulled out a closely-contested 27-24 victory.

Michigan State was sure to point out all of these poorly-aged takes. After all the doubters tweets were shown, the video adopted a popular TikTok trend and cut to the famous clip of the Saddam Hussein announcement: "Ladies and gentlemen, we got him."

After that, the video showed the Spartan's locker room celebration, complete with a Mel Tucker dance circle.

Michigan State started their season with a disappointing upset loss to Rutgers. Michigan started theirs with a strong win over No. 21 Minnesota. Coming into Saturday's game, the Wolverines were favored by 25.

The Michigan vs. Michigan State rivalry has always been an unpredictable one though. Last year the Wolverines completely dismantled the Spartans 44-10. But, with today's win, Michigan State has taken down Michigan in the Big House three of the last four games in Ann Arbor.

In a wild, delayed start for the Big Ten this year, almost nothing is going as expected.

This wacky tweet from Michigan State certainly fits the mold of the 2020 season so far.
