Michigan played the game without sophomore forward Nkem Ezurike, who was forced to sit out one game after receiving her fifth yellow card of the season against Northwestern last Saturday. Ezurike will return to the lineup for the team's game Sunday (Oct. 16) at Purdue.
Michigan falls to 8-5-7 all-time against Michigan State. The Wolverines haven't won in East Lansing since 1998, and haven't beaten its in-state rivals since 2003.
Prior to Michigan State's first goal, neither team had scored a goal in the last 330:46, a stretch that dated back to the 2008 match-up.
It was Michigan's first road loss since Sept. 4 at Pepperdine.
The game can be seen on the Big Ten Network tomorrow (Thursday, Oct. 13) at 12:30 p.m.
