The normal chants of Go Green! and Go Blue! were replaced on Saturday by Let's Go Tigers! The football game is one of the biggest sporting events in Mid-Michigan throughout the year but baseball seemed to overshadow it.
Once the Spartans fell behind early, fans watched the Tigers dismantle the New York Yankees.
Nearly 300 sports fans packed into Buffalo Wild Wings in East Lansing to catch all the action, keeping staff busy throughout the day.
Tiger fans expect Detroit to go on to the World Series by knocking off the Oakland Athletics, their opponent in the American League Championship Series.
