This Saturday, undefeated Michigan State travels to Michigan for a clash of top-12 teams. Before the big game this weekend, some Wolverine fans allegedly made a trip to East Lansing to add fuel to the rivalry.

The Magic Johnson statue outside Michigan State’s Breslin Center was vandalized, among other places on campus. A yellow ‘M’ was graffitied on Johnson’s jersey, while "Beat State" was written at the base of the statue. Here’s a photo from Spartans junior guard Alvin Ellis III.

The Spartans and Wolverines kick off from the Big House at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday.
