ANN ARBOR, Mich. – The Michigan Wolverines remain undefeated after beating the Northwestern Wildcats, 33-7, on Saturday at the Big House in Ann Arbor.

No. 6-ranked Michigan (7-0) now will take on in-state rival No. 9 Michigan State (7-0) next week (Saturday, Oct. 30) in East Lansing.

The football teams are both undefeated heading into this game for the first time since 2010. Michigan State won that game in 2010, in Ann Arbor, 34–17. The Spartans also won the most recent meeting last year in Ann Arbor, 27-24.

The undefeated Spartans are in a bye week this weekend. They beat Indiana, 20-15, last weekend to improve to 7-0.

Both Michigan and Michigan State could move up in the AP College Football Rankings released Sunday.
