Game ball for week 5 loss to Michigan State
With quarterback John O'Korn filling in for injured starter Wilton Speight (fractured vertebrae), the Wolverines managed just 300 total yards as they fell from the ranks of the unbeaten. His first throw of the game was intercepted, and an incomplete pass on fourth-and-goal set up a 10-0 Kansas State lead in the second quarter.
MI took the opening kickoff on a 16-play nearly seven-minute journey that ended with a field goal.
The Wolverines' sins, five turnovers, turned out to be more mortal.
The Spartans exceeded that figure and neutralized the MI attack to collect another thrilling road victory against their archrival. Michigan State showed how ferocious it is in the front seven vs. Michigan, which had just 252 yards with only 102 on the ground (2.6 ypc).
The Spartans (4-1, 2-0 Big Ten) have beaten MI eight times in a 10-year stretch for the first time in a series that dates to 1898.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Danny Etling threw a short touchdown pass in the second half and LSU rebounded from a stunning home loss with a victory at No. 21 Florida. But he was hardly the only MI player who didn't take care of the ball Saturday night. Lewerke had a big first down late in the game where he picked up five yards on a broken play and the defense made O'Korn uncomfortable. Most weren't fighting as hard in the drizzle on Saturday night.
Strong winds and heavy rain affected the game in the third quarter, making it even more hard for the offensively challenged teams to move the ball. MI is a 10-point favorite, according to Vegas Insider.
As it was, O'Korn wasn't throwing particularly well, nor was he demonstrating any pocket presence. Sony Michel added 150 yards and a TD, while Elijah Holyfield scored his first career TD on a 15-yard run.
"I'm not going to shy away from scrambling, I'm not going to shy away from running the ball". Sure, you could possibly blame two of O'Korn's interceptions on the rainy conditions. It appears he doesn't remotely have the right quarterback. No, college players shouldn't be criticized the way pros are due to their age and experience. London was the skill-position standout in this one, so much as anybody was a skill-position standout in this slog of a game.
Even though MI looked like a team building for 2018 because of all the key players gone from previous year, the Wolverines owned high expectations to win now, too. Maybe this is why. The quarterback also will need some help from the men calling his plays. But the Spartans' defense knotted up and forced Quinn Nordin to boot a 30-yard field goal that gave the Wolverines a 3-0 lead with 8:04 left in the first quarter. How McDoom responds to this might be one of the more intriguing storylines through the rest of the season. Michigan's season started with extremely high expectations. On social media, some Wolverines fans are already declaring the season over.
Michael Hughes threw for two touchdowns and ran for another for Tennessee State (4-2, 1-2 Ohio Valley). After that is Ohio State in Columbus before a soft landing with Maryland and Rutgers. Asked for a reaction, Harbaugh bit down hard and remained as pleasant as he was going to get after just having his guts ripped out. After a botched punt return attempt - of all things in this series - the Wolverines' defense narrowly missed picking up a safety on back-to-back plays.
