Michigan vs. Michigan State fight suspensions: Four more Spartans disciplined for tunnel brawl, eight total

- Advertisement -

The fallout from Michigan State’s one-sided brawl with Michigan in the tunnel after Saturday night’s game is continuing with more player suspensions.

After the program announced Sunday that four players were suspended as a result of the incident, Michigan State suspended four additional players on Tuesday to bring the total to eight.

Video appeared to show several Michigan State players attacking a pair of Michigan players in the tunnel after the Wolverines’ 29-7 win on Saturday.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh labeled the incident “assault” and later said he “can’t imagine that this will not result in criminal charges.”

No charges have been filed, but police from both schools are continuing to investigate the incident.

Michigan State 2022 record

It’s been a difficult season for Michigan State on the field as well as off of it. The Spartans were one of the nation’s best stories in 2021, finishing 11-2 with a Peach Bowl win, but they’re just 3-5 in 2022 and have lost five of their last six. 

The Spartans will need to finish at least 3-1 over their next four games to be bowl-eligible, and they’ll now have to do it without a handful of contributors. Michigan State faces No. 14 Illinois on Saturday.
