Former UM and MSU players join together for charity

Former Michigan State running back T.J. Duckett and ex-Michigan safety Cato June have joined together to raise money for their respective charities this week in light of the rivalry game taking place in Ann Arbor on Saturday.

As a part of the House Divided Challenge, the two will compete to see who can raise more money for Duckett’s charity, New World Flood, and the Jaguar Football Club that June supports, with the loser having to wear his rivals colors and post a picture on social media.

No. 12 Michigan hosts No. 7 Michigan State and although the Spartans sit atop the Wolverines in all the college football polls this week, many are picking the home team as the favorite to win at the Big House after three straight consecutive shutout wins.

Michigan (5-1) has only allowed 38 points the entire season.

The Spartans, however, are 6-0, but have snuck away with wins pretty much all season long, with its most recent victory coming after a late fourth quarter touchdown at Rutgers to win 34-28.

Duckett and June tweeted their own predictions on Monday about the big game along with a little trash talk to kick-off the challenge.

No matter who comes out on top Saturday afternoon, though, two former college football rivals have definitely come together for a huge win for charity this week.
