Frustration around Jim Harbaugh mounts as Michigan loses to Michigan State

Frustration around Jim Harbaugh mounts as Michigan loses to Michigan State

One play earlier, a personal foul by Chris Frey helped moved the ball to midfield. "All of it is coming to fruition and paying off".

This will be the 47th meeting between the two schools with Iowa carrying a slim 23-22-2 in the all-time series advantage but MSU is 11-10, in East Lansing. Lewerke is also the leading rusher for the Spartans and is average 6.5 yards per carry.

When the skies opened up in Ann Arbor, did MI put the ball in the hands of its running backs to try to limit mistakes?

"That's why we come here, for an atmosphere like that", Bachie said. "We definitely played it beforehand. A lot of those guys stepped up and made huge plays tonight".

The defenses stood tall on both sides as the teams traded punts on their next four possessions before MI quarterback John O'Korn (16-for-35, 198 yards 3 interceptions) began a MI march at their own 37 with 1:20 left in the half.

With its third chance to win the game, Texas (3-2, 2-0 Big 12) secured the win when Warren carried a mass of humanity into the end zone on third-and-goal from the two.

It was a crushing blow to the Wolverines' championship aspirations.

Jim Harbaugh's crew has issues getting the job done on the offensive side of the football, and he knows it.

It was a great story for MSU, but an extraordinarily disappointing one for MI. How McDoom responds to this might be one of the more intriguing storylines through the rest of the season. Fowler added that Speight is "out, probably for the season". "Come Monday, it's back to work". He finished with a season-low in total yardage (155), but also recorded his second straight turnover-free performance - this time in poor conditions - after struggling with ball security the first three games of the fall. London later broke a 50-yard run that put Michigan State in position to push the Wolverines from their heels to their backsides before halftime. Savoy went 53 yards on a slant pattern to open the scoring midway through the first quarter, and the Hokies (5-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) never trailed.

Quinn Nordin's 30-yard field goal completed Michigan's first possession. The defense gave the Wolverines' offense plenty of opportunities to chip away at a four-point deficit or take the lead that were ultimately squandered.

Michigan State continues to scratch out just enough offense.

Eddie McDoom of MI dropped a pass at the MSU 30-yard line with:19 seconds left. The play calling last night was horrendous.

Jermiah Hartfields is a Wolverine fan and he said MSU doesn't deserve threats and suggest people instead take that energy and serve it up in the game, "I think we should just beat them out on the field, and let us talk on the field" said Jermiah Hartfields.

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.

The Wolverines now travel to IN to face the Hoosiers.
