Wolverines Turn One Over To The Spartans, 14-10

MSU's defense is holding opponents to 18 points and 248.3 yards per game, including just 96 rushing yards per game.

Khalid Hill's 1-yard scoring run with 8:09 left in the third pulled MI within 14-10.

The Indiana Memorial Stadium in Bloomington, Indiana will be hosting the game between the #16 Michigan Wolverines and the Indiana Hoosiers at 12:00 PM EST this Saturday. MSU managed only 252 yards to Michigan's 300, but a pair of first-half touchdowns was all it required. They'll enter this game off a 28-10 win at the Purdue Boilermakers, while Michigan State comes in off a 17-10 victory over Iowa at home.

Sunday, the morning after the loss to Michigan State, mlive.com aggregated some of the frustration expressed by fans under an article headlined, "Is Jim Harbaugh a good fit at Michigan?". Already he's 0-2 against Ohio State and now he is 1-2 against Michigan State after an ugly 14-10 loss.

Michigan State finished off the Buckeyes with one of their best defensive performances that season. Starting for the second time, Dowell recovered a fumble late in the first half to end a MI scoring threat, then had two interceptions in the second half. The Wolverines got it back for one final shot, but a ball hurled by O'Korn into the south end zone got tipped away, delivering Michigan's first loss of the season.

Will No. 7 Michigan have any struggles at home when it hosts Michigan State tonight at 7:30PM ET in a Big Ten rivalry game?

In sometimes-monsoon conditions, Michigan State brought the storm to No. 7 Michigan.

Vegas Play of the Day: Seahawks at Rams
According to the Seattle Times , defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson will miss some games after suffering from a broken hand. As we previewed in our Seahawks breakdown , the Seahawks have struggled against the run but are still an elite pass defense.

With a.670 completion percentage, McSorley's ranked third in the Big Ten and 19 in the FBS standings, while also atop the conference with 1,597 passing yards.

MSU running back Gerald Holmes left the game after an apparent ankle injury early in the second quarter.

The defense once again was the only bright spot. The identity must be found on offense, or the Wolverines are going to start losing to those other teams.

There was also lots of turnover in the bottom third of the rankings, with four teams moving in, including three for the first time this season.

The history of the Big House has featured plenty of miracle finishes, often going against the home team: the Michigan State fumbled punt return, Appalachian State's blocked field goal upset, Kordell Stewart's Hail Mary. Their O/U trends are 2-6 in their last 8 games overall, 1-5 in their last 6 October games, and 0-4 in their last 4 games against teams with a winning record. They still have trips to Wisconsin and Penn State on the schedule, as well as a visit from Ohio State, and they won't be favored in any of them.

No one really knew what to expect from Michigan State and Mark Dantonio after a disastrous 3-9 season previous year and a host of offseason controversies and personnel shuffling. Although it is still early, a loss this weekend will make the road to the Big 12 Championship hard for any team with Big 12 title hopes.

Another weekend of college football is behind us, and that means it's time to breakdown everything that happened on Saturday.
