Michigan State University football fans look forward to hearing Spartan touchdown cheers resound on the banks of the Red Cedar tomorrow, as University of Michigan faithful  hope to repeat last year’s victorious performance.

Saturday’s battle for the Paul Bunyan trophy has shaped up to be the Big-10’s most significant game so far this season, and Spartan spirit is running high in East Lansing.

The “old college spirit” and football fight songs are a favorite topic for Oakland, California-based freelance writer Nithin Coca.  His recent Yahoo article “Top 25 College Football Fight Songs” includes the favorite tunes of powerhouse programs, and a few surprises.

Current State's Peter Whorf recently spoke with Coca about the role of music in college sports.
