Michigan State stuns rival and seventh-ranked Michigan

Michigan State stuns rival and seventh-ranked Michigan

· Michigan's five turnovers is the most the team has had since turning the ball over six times at Notre Dame in 2012. For all the MI fans who wanted to see O'Korn take over for the injured Wilton Speight, the senior looked like a quarterback who hadn't played regularly in almost three years and was making his first start of the season.

LJ Scott will need a big bounce-back game against the Wolverines if the Spartans are going to have a chance.

Michigan: The Wolverines miss Speight more than expected. You win the turnover margin and you have a chance to win the game. Taking that into consideration, it would've been embarrassing for Michigan State to lose.

EVANSTON, Ill. - Trace McSorley threw for 245 yards and a touchdown, Saquon Barkley ran for two scores in the second half, and No. 4 Penn State beat Northwestern.

Michigan's only touchdown came in the third quarter with a 1-yard run from Khalid Hill. Had MSU converted on one or two more turnovers, the game would have been in check.

On Saturday, a group made up of about 20 players on the University of michigan's football squad stood in a circle, with their heads and arms interlocked during the playing of "The Star-Spangled Banner" ahead of their rvalry match against Michigan State.

Where: Michigan Stadium, Ann Arbor, Mich.

Michigan State wants this win.

The Spartans led 14-3 at halftime.

As it was, O'Korn wasn't throwing particularly well, nor was he demonstrating any pocket presence. First, the Spartans did not turn the ball over. O'Korn's mobility helped at times against an oppressive Spartans pass rush, but it also prevented him from letting his receivers get open. Kansas State put its offense on the field, up 27-24 with 5:43 to play, but, rather than putting the game away, the Wildcats punted the ball away after a three-and-out. Michigan's offense struggled to be effective for the remainder of the contest. The play calling last night was horrendous. No, college players shouldn't be criticized the way pros are due to their age and experience. That, and Michigan's inability to score on the final drive of the game, with John O'Korn having to heave up a last-second Hail Mary attempt that was no good. Maybe this is why.

MI did receive the ball back with 40 second to play, but with no timeouts, they were forced to eventually attempt a Hail Mary which was batted down by Spartan linebacker Joe Bachie with zeroes on the clock. How McDoom responds to this might be one of the more intriguing storylines through the rest of the season.

Bachie forced a Ty Isaac fumble and Chris Frey recovered at the MI 46.

Michigan was headed deep into Michigan State territory in the final two minutes of the first half, but sophomore tight end Sean McKeon fumbled after catching a pass and the Spartans took over.

The Michigan Wolverines lost 14-10 to Michigan State in a game that was played poorly by both teams. The Spartans could win their next three games against Minnesota, Indiana and Northwestern. After that is Ohio State in Columbus before a soft landing with Maryland and Rutgers. They didn't lead again against coach Mark Dantonio, who has figured out how to take control of a rivalry that has historically been tilted in Michigan's favor. The Spartans already have a win in one of the toughest road trips of Big Ten play and crucially avoid Wisconsin from the West, leaving a home game against Ohio State and a visit to Happy Valley in back-to-back weeks to close out the season.
