Michigan football's trip to Penn State will be a night game

There is now a good chance the Big 12 doesn't have a team in the playoff. The betting is going heavily in favor of MI covering the spread with only 23% for the Hoosiers and 77% for the Wolverines. The lines opened with a 47 point total that has since dropped to 46 points and a 6.5 spread for the Wolverines which has since dropped to 5.5 points. The brunt is going to fall on John O'Korn, who threw three second-half interceptions in his first start of the season. But fifth-year senior tailback Ty Isaac got stripped of the ball, and MSU's Chris Frey pounced on it at the U-M 46. A 30-yard pass from Lewerke to Darrell Stewart moved the Spartans into MI territory. MI will be in action this week as they travel to Bloomington, Indiana to take the Hoosiers in a noon kickoff. However, in last week's victory over Purdue, he went out with a soft tissue injury. In addition to the five turnovers, the Spartans had a season-high four sacks and now have 13 for the season, two more than in all of 2016.

Michigan hurt itself with five turnovers, but Michigan State wasn't doing itself any favors with 11 penalties for 81 yards.

The Spartans didn't have a first down in the second half until their final drive of the game, a possession that started with 2:13 and ended with a punt from the MI 47 that went through the end zone with 34 seconds left.

As for my prediction, I think the Wolverines win this game by a touchdown.

Even though the Buffalo Bulls did not come away with a victory against Western Michigan, quarterback Drew Anderson was stellar.

We needed two overtimes in Austin and seven in Buffalo.

In the end, MI came away with 100 percent frustration on a near miss. However, it was not his arm that was most effective in the game.

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Clemson coach Dabo Swinney expects injured quarterback Kelly Bryant to practice later in the week to try and prepare to face Syracuse on Friday night.

He is also the type of pitcher who might let the natural adrenaline of a postseason game impact his performance a little bit. If Nunez is ruled out for the series, the Red Sox will replace him with outfielder Chris Young , according to Farrell.

Like Michigan two years ago, Michigan State was tasked with running out the clock late with a lead. MI turned the ball over five times including three interceptions thrown by John O'Korn. Karan Higdon gained 65 yards on 12 carries for the Wolverines (4-1, 1-1). Grant Perry was the team's top receiver, making five receptions for 61 yards.

"It's pretty cool", McSorley said with a smile when asked about hearing that he first broke the record. Michigan, then at Ohio State and Michigan State is about as brutal a slate as the conference can hand out.

"We definitely talked about it", Lewerke said. "When it does, we'll go after bigger goals".

About 20 MI players formed a circle and locked their arms together during the national anthem.

The driving rains then began pelting Michigan Stadium, swinging the advantage to both defenses.

"There was one point it was a torrential downpour, and it was tough to throw the football", O'Korn said.
