Get ready, the first annual "Battle for The Mitten" is coming to Cooley Law School Stadium this Friday.

Of course the big Michigan State University - University of Michigan football rivalry weekend is also coming as the Wolverines take on MSU at Spartan Stadium, and to help kick off this weekend, the Michigan State/Michigan Rugby Clubs will be mixing it up at Cooley Law School Stadium.

I have to admit that I know nothing about rugby, other than it seems like it's a lot like football but the players don't have helmets and pads. So whether you're like me or you actually do know about the sport of rugby, it sounds like a good time on Friday under the lights downtown with lots of fun, food and drink to be enjoyed. Gates open at 5 p.m., kickoff is at 7 p.m.

Get more information from the Battle for the Mitten website here, and get your tickets for the big match here.
