Minnesota vs. Michigan State

Validation? Versus Michigan? The Spartans are past the point of needing it.

Nearly immediately after the score, a heavy rain began falling at Michigan Stadium, slowing down each team's offense to a grinding halt. While the MI defense was forcing MSU to punt seven of their eight 2 half possessions (forcing fumble on the 8), John O'Korn continued to hand it right back over to the Spartans while throwing three interceptions.

O'Korn was picked off on three straight possessions, but the Spartans failed to cash in on any of them. Three of them were intercepted.

"And I think that's the biggest issue that you face in these kinds of games".

How does cornerback Lavert Hill handle the challenge of covering receivers down the field when the quarterback may tuck the ball and run? "That's what we're trying to do, step by step".

In week six of the college football season, there is an extremely important Big Ten game between Michigan and Michigan State. The Wolverines should be able to handle IN at Bloomington next week, but they visit No. 4 Penn State the Saturday after that, and their regular season ends with games at No. 9 Wisconsin and home vs.

Jim Harbaugh has had his share of heartbreaking losses as a player and a coach. His picks came on consecutive drives in the second half after Michigan's only touchdown of the game.

Quarterback Brian Lewerke finished as the Spartans' leading rusher for the third time this season with 15 carries for 61 yards and a touchdown, while London finished with 59 yards on the ground and senior running back Gerald Holmes recorded 27 yards.

Michigan: The Wolverines miss Speight more than expected.

Michigan State pulled off the upset of No. 7 Michigan at the Big House. They've been doing that since 2007, and that's why Michigan State is 8-3 in games involving the Paul Bunyan Trophy under Dantonio. In the loss to Michigan State, the Wolverines committed 5 turnovers. MI imploded in the game, losing five turnovers to the Spartans.

The Wolverines opened with a 16-play, 64-yard drive that took almost 7 minutes off the clock, but they had to settle for a field goal and a 3-0 lead.

ROLLING OUT: Michigan prides itself on playing man-to-man defense. It did force Jake Hartbarger to punt with his earhole in the MI student section. In the Purdue game, he played a great game. He completed 16 of 35 passes for 198 yards. It all looked a lot like Michigan's offense in big games previous year. He was sacked a number of times, but he also showed very poor pocket awareness. Prior to kickoff, the team also played a video that featured student athelets and athletic director Warde Manuel as they asked fans and supporters to be mindful of the opinions of the athletes who take to the field and to be aware of and willing to speak on social injustices.
