Dienhart: Michigan State is back, following its latest win vs. rival Michigan

09 October 2017

3 Oklahoma losing to Iowa State.

"We definitely talked about it", Lewerke said. MI is a 10-point favorite, according to Vegas Insider. However, Penn State won the rest of its regular season games to win the Big Ten East.

Even though Penn State won convincingly at Northwestern on Saturday, it wasn't really the Nittany Lions' win that moved the voters.

In Big 12 standings, Oklahoma's loss blows the conference wide open as another loss will greatly diminish its chance at the Big 12 Championship. The Hurricanes gain two positions to crack the top 10 on the heels of their thrilling win against archrival Florida State. The final score of that game was 14-10, as the Spartans defeated the Wolverines on Michigan's home field, according to ESPN.

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

The final verdict was a dominating performance behind Kyle Hendricks , who absolutely shut down the Washington Nationals bats. Setup man Carl Edwards Jr . made easy work of the bottom of the eighth, striking out two and getting Bryce Harper to pop out.

Fans attending Saturday's Michigan-Michigan State football game at Michigan Stadium should be prepared for rain and potential severe weather. They knew exactly what front MI was going to be in.

Spartan Dawgs come up Big - Outside of Michigan's opening drive, where the run defense was gashed for 39 yards on 10 of the Wolverines 16 plays, the MSU defense gave up just 63 yards of offense on the ground. Michigan State is now ranked No. 21, while Michigan has fallen to No. 12 in the rankings.

But amongst the many aspects of the game the Spartans pride themselves on - stopping the run, creating takeaways - the shift in mentality was one of them.

The Big Ten crown was already Penn State's to lose, but Michigan's loss solidified that notion. Michigan fell to Michigan State in Ann Arbor in major upset fashion.

Penn State saw goals from three different seniors on the afternoon with Megan Schafer (Langhorne, Pa.) netting the first two goals and both Elizabeth Ball (Richmond, Va.) and Haleigh Echard (Lebanon, Pa.) scoring one each. However, Korn also threw an interception and was sacked four times. If you're Ohio State, which checks in at No. 9, this thing is far from over. Stanford hit the road to take on No. 20 Utah and effectively knocked the Utes out of the AP Top 25. They weren't flawless by any means, but still dominated this game and covered the spread in the process.

On Sunday, the coach's indecision on a fourth-and-1 play inside the NY 5-yard line was arguably the turning point in the game. This game could come down the wire, with either team winning on a late score, so I like taking the points here.

Oklahoma and MI took expected drops in the Associated Press poll after disappointing home losses, while four new teams entered the rankings after consistent performances throughout the season.

While not a crippling loss in terms of making the CFB playoffs, it does dim their hopes quite a bit. They're the team on the upswing again. But it's hard to criticize how well they've played to this point."It's awesome to see", tight end Mike Gesicki said.

Yikes, it's early. But my midseason prediction is Alabama, Clemson, Washington and ... a Big Ten team to be named later. That's not an excuse for Michigan's game play, however.

"They have gotten the better hand since I've been here", Hurst said.

Saturday night was a bad night all around for MI football fans.

I don't point fingers, if things have gone my way, things haven't gone my way. "I felt a lot of calls were questionable". DeVante Parker suffered an ankle injury in the first quarter and did not return. "I just kept playing", Jones said.
