The last time Michigan beat Michigan State in East Lansing was 2007. So you'd think Wolverines might want to go light on the "Little Brother" talk this week ahead of their trip to Spartan Stadium.
Here's running back Fitz Toussaint on how the rivalry has become personal to him:
"We labeled them as a little brother," Toussaint said. "And, you know, little brother always wants to prove themselves and try to beat up the big brother one day.
"I think they really take offense to that."
But wait. There's more:
"It's going to be better in their house," Toussaint said. "Once we go over there and take care of business, it will (feel better than last season's win)."
