Michigan State came into the game marred in controversy. Eight players were suspended after a fight in the Michigan tunnel when the Spartans lost to their arch-rivals. An investigation into the incident is still ongoing and some players involved could still face charges.

However, Michigan State was able to put all that behind them for at least one week and beat Illinois on a windy Saturday afternoon.
