Michigan is a heavy favorite against Michigan State.

With one win, the Spartans got to both play spoiler to their archrivals and regain their national relevance that was lost so abruptly last season. We needed two overtimes in Austin and seven in Buffalo.

Who knows? For now, this weird and unconventional offense continues to do enough to keep the Spartans on track in the East. "That's something Coach D (Mark Dantonio) preaches".

Michigan State has been able to own this series at the betting window, but the Wolverines got things back in their favor previous year and I think it continues tonight. A home game with MI followed by a tough road test at Ohio State certainly won't be easy. The days of "Sparty No" are long dead and gone.

During today's game, every @UAB_FB player is wearing the name of a young patient at the nearby Children's Harbor Hospital. You can't blame it on the rain.

Sergio Ramos: 'Gerard Pique and I have a great relationship'
Ramos and Pique , who play for rival clubs Madrid and Barca, have feuded in the past but are now on good terms. The gamble paid off as Spain earned a 3-0 win in a game in which he handed a start to youngster Marco Asensio .

While the Big Ten hasn't seen any major shocks yet, the conference's drama is shaping up nicely heading into the meat of the season.

The difference was five turnovers.

Forget the overreactions about Harbaugh's rating - over, under, proper - that's another distraction.

Michigan State's one loss this season, in Week 4 to Notre Dame, doesn't look so bad in retrospect now that the Irish are 5-1 and ranked No. 21.

Ohio State and Auburn round out the Top 10. That's nothing more than an attention-grabber for angst or a hot seat that just isn't there.

PM also flagged off the "Antyodaya Express", between Udhna (Surat, Gujarat) and Jaynagar (Bihar). In his warm speech, PM gave all credit to the people and the Vadnagar soil for what he is today.

In the short term, the offense is the issue. QB John O'Korn, who's starting for the injured Wilton Speight, threw three interceptions in the loss. Those are his fault, but it's not like the Wolverines are putting him in position to succeed. Senior running back Ty Isaac fumbled near midfield in the first quarter. Even with its 3-1 record, it seemed like an afterthought in the conference, plummeting to the basement a year ago after spending much of the last decade near the top of the Big Ten. I'm still a bit anxious about that game, but feel a lot better after watching the pathetic performance from the Wolverines against MSU.

You can't fall behind 14-3 when you know the flood is coming in the second half. Chris Evans also had 12 carries, but finished with just 27 yards rushing for the Wolverines.

Joe Bachie and the Michigan State defense came to Michigan Stadium with the lofty goal of forcing four turnovers. "They made some things happen". It might happen against IN next week. Michigan's defense will need to provide plenty of help, and it can.

Lewerke was 6-for-14 for 74 yards passing and ran four times for 28 yards in the opening half. The Spartans held on from there, and it worked. On third-and-4 from its own 41 with 4:20 left in the fourth quarter, MI ran a do-nothing draw with Chris Evans. 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. It didn't work, and the Wolverines punted. Up next is a game at Minnesota followed by a visit from IN and trip to Northwestern before the Penn State-Ohio State 1-2 punch. A holding call set up the frenetic finish, but it would take a miracle for the Wolverines to win.

Michigan State (4-1, 2-0 Big Ten) has beaten Michigan eight times in a 10-year stretch for the first time in a series that dates to 1898.

Optimistic May to call for flexibility from European Union in Brexit talks
Jensen called for compromise, saying "this will never be a 100 per cent win for one side or the other side". He added: "The timing of talks depends on the availability of our United Kingdom partners".

MI will get Paul Bunyan back when they can do the same.
