Where it all began. Two bitter, cross-state NCAA rivals, Michigan and Michigan State, duke it out in the open air at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing. The outdoor tilt, affectionately referred to as the “Cold War on Ice” is played out in front of a record 74,544 fans. Michael Cammalleri rises to the occasion, beating Spartans netminder Ryan Miller twice to put the Wolverines up 3-2 to start the third period but in a display of last minute heroics, Jim Slater pots the equalizer for Michigan State, bringing the final score to a 3-3 tie. The highly-anticipated outdoor rematch is set to take place on U Michigan turf this December 11.
