Rivalry week is officially underway in East Lansing.
While the Michigan State Spartans have not had the success they were hoping for this season, you know the team will be ready to welcome the No. 2 Michigan Wolverines to town on Saturday.
In anticipation of the rivalry, the Spartans are already playing some mind games throughout the week.
Most recently, Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio took a page out of Jim Harbaugh’s playbook and decided against releasing the depth chart for this week’s game.
Michigan State removed its weekly depth chart from its game notes for the Michigan game. It's rivalry week.

Michigan State will need as much magic as possible this weekend if there is going to be any chance of upending the Wolverines.
Kickoff between the Spartans and Wolverines is set for noon ET on ESPN.
