After the bowl announcements came out yesterday, Big Ten fans may have noticed a slight snub.

8-4 Michigan, who lost their head-to-head match up with 9-3 Michigan State, was chosen for the Outback Bowl, while the Spartans learned that their bowl destination would be the Holiday Bowl. The Outback Bowl is widely regarded as a top tier bowl, while many would view the Holiday Bowl as a slight step below.

So when Mark Dantonio was asked about the Wolverines being chosen for a “better” bowl game by media after the bowl assignments came out, you can sense why he had some low key swagger in his answer.

No rivalry would be complete without a rebuttal, which Harbaugh took to Twitter to provide this afternoon.

Aren’t rivalries fun?
