By The Numbers: U-M head-to-head recruiting with MSU
Over the past five years, Michigan and Michigan State have not just found themselves doing battle on the field. The in-state rivals have also increased the competition for recruits, going head-to-head 48 times in the 2011-15 classes.
On the field of play, U-M was in the midst of a six-game winning streak (2002-07) over the Green and White.
State had the upper hand on the field in each of those three seasons.
That represents the Wolverines' worst three-year stretch (11-13 for a success rate of 45.8 percent) against the Spartans in the 13 classes available to be researched on Rivals.com.
In the 2014 class, even after another loss in 2013, U-M went 6-2 in recruiting battles against its in-sate brethren.
