US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Michigan Wolverines will go for their 900th win in program history Saturday against the Michigan State Spartans

The University of Michigan will go for their 900th win in program history Saturday against the Michigan State Spartans, according to the University of Michigan students' Twitter account.

Michigan's storied history, which includes 78 All-Americans, 11 National Titles, 42 conference titles and three Heisman Trophy winners, led them to their 899th win this past week as they crushed Illinois, 45-0. The Wolverines, who would be the first team in NCAA football history to 900 wins, currently stand with an overall program record of 899-311-36. Michigan's inaugural season was in 1879.

Saturday's contest with Michigan State holds significance historically, but it also could have Big Ten standings implications for this season as well. The Wolverines, at 2-0 in conference play, are tied with Iowa for the top spot in the Legends division. Michigan State has suffered two conference losses already and sit at 1-2 in conference play, 4-3 overall. They look to fight their way back up the standings with five conference games still to play.
