On Saturday night, the Michigan football team defeated the rival Michigan State Spartans 29–7 before things turned nasty.
Immediately following the final whistle, a fight broke out between the two teams on the field, which continued for a short while afterward.
Two witnesses told WolverinesWire that a Michigan football player was jumped as he came up the tunnel while the rest of his team was still out on the field.
When the victim was on the ground, other Spartans reportedly kicked him repeatedly.
Matt Charbonneau, a reporter for the Detroit News who covers Michigan State, filmed the brawl; the footage does not reflect well on the Spartans.
It was the first time in our eight years of covering the team that the tunnel had extra security. After the game, police were stationed near the Michigan State changing rooms.

It wasn’t a rousing victory where one team completely dominated the other. Even though there wasn’t much tension, the victory was significant because it was over a rival. Michigan opted not to pass the ball in this game, opting instead to run the ball (Blake Corum had another great game).
