This is just the fourth time since 1965 that these two Midwest schools will meet on the pitch. It's a rematch of last year's contest in East Lansing, Mich., which the Spartans won 1-0.
Michigan State (1-4-0) was ranked No. 19 in the NSCAA preseason poll, but have lost two straight. The Spartans' lone win is a 3-0 shutout over New Hampshire.
Marquette (1-4-0), which opened with four straight games away from Valley Fields, comes into Friday's match looking to get back on the winning track after three straight consecutive losses since its 3-2 double-overtime victory against Western Michigan back on Sept. 4 in the Panther Invitational.
