The game will be broadcast by ABC beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Head coach James Franklin's team is the only unbeaten team in its division entering the bye week, as the Lions sit at 6-0 before a visit from MI, and a trip to Ohio State, following the idle week. However, the Wolverines won the most recent contest 32-23. The Wolverines threw back to back fade patterns incomplete forcing them to settle for a Nordin field goal.
By the start of the fourth quarter, everyone in the Big House was drenched, and two in-state rivals were separated by four points-the Paul Bunyan Trophy was up for grabs, as long as anyone could get a grip on it.
Where does that rank among disappointing setbacks?
"And I think that's the biggest issue that you face in these kinds of games". Let's not forget that Michigan State is probably an undefeated Big Ten contender right now if it didn't turn the ball over three times against Notre Dame.
O'Korn finished Saturday's game against Michigan State with 198 yards and three interceptions on just 16-of-35 passing.
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. A three-game stretch against Rutgers, Minnesota and Maryland may salvage a good season for MI, but those final two matchups against Wisconsin and Ohio State could be brutal.
The biggest call came on Frey in the final minute of the game.
Harbaugh is in Year 3 at MI, and if anyone thought the top-10 ranking was fitting ... no.
Sure, the Wolverines had one last Hail Mary gasp in a 14-10 loss to the Spartans at Michigan Stadium. 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. "It is exciting to get another opportunity to play these guys and get some revenge for past years".
The defense did provide Michigan's biggest second-half spark. Michigan State has defeated Michigan 11 times when the Wolverines were ranked in the Top 10, but it hadn't happened since 2001.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Damien Harris ran for 124 yards and a touchdown, and Jalen Hurts had a TD pass and ran for a score as Alabama (6-0, 3-0 SEC) beat Texas A&M (4-2, 2-1). If Lewerke rolls out and his teammates can keep defensive ends and outside linebackers on the inside, he may have room to run. "We've fallen down in other areas, but we're going to try to always rise up".
"Just stay your eyes on the man at all times", Hill said.
On Monday, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh announced to the media that O'Korn would start once again this coming Saturday against Indiana.
Sophomore running back Chris Evans scored made his first touchdown of the year in the third quarter, handing MI a distinct advantage. The sophomore quarterback dove, rolling over center Brian Allen and Michigan's James Hudson. Being down 14-3 at halftime didn't bode well for MI, as throwing the ball was likely to be hard in heavy rain. Wisconsin's beatdown of Nebraska reaffirmed that the conference is somewhat solidified on one side of the slate; in the West, only the Badgers look like a playoff contender.
