Spartans upset No. 7 MI in a storm on the road

Spartans upset No. 7 MI in a storm on the road

The Wolverines won in East Lansing previous year. Even the teams that have inconsistent records might have the right matchup against a team, and any team with a winning record will have target on them.

Safety David Dowell was another key member of the Michigan State Spartans' stellar defense in their surprising and unexpected upset victory over the Michigan Wolverines.

Michigan State sophomore linebacker Joe Bachie has been named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week after helping lead the Spartan defense to an impressive performance in the 14-10 win at No. 7 Michigan last Saturday in Ann Arbor. You win the turnover margin, you have a very good chance to win the game.

ABC's Saturday Night Football featuring Michigan State at Michigan (7:30 p.m. ET) earned a 3.9 Nielsen overnight, the highest-rated college football game of week 6 across all networks. MI needed a miracle of its own on Saturday to beat the Spartans, but it wasn't to be.

Anthony Johnson was Drew Anderson's favorite and most reliable target in Buffalo's tough 71-68 loss to the Western Michigan Broncos in seven overtimes.

And a bobbled snap once again provided the Spartans with a memorable play.

Faced with a similar punt situation, Michigan State did what Michigan couldn't in 2015 and successfully got it away, into the end zone for a touchback.

Then O'Korn found a wide-open Eddie McDoom ... but he dropped the ball. The offense made it to the Michigan State 37-yard line with five seconds left, but O'Korn's Hail Mary heave fell incomplete at the goal line, ending the game.

Giants lose to Chargers; Odell Beckham Jr. hurt in loss
It also came four plays after Odell Beckham Jr. hurt an ankle and become the fourth Giants receiver knocked out of the game. NY ranks third-to-last in the league with 3.2 yards per carry, and will be without running back Paul Perkins (ribs) today.

Michigan's results this season are worrisome for their fans.

The native of Brook Park, Ohio, forced a fumble on Michigan's second offensive series in the first quarter, giving MSU excellent field position at the MI 46-yard line.

Oklahoma lost at home to Iowa State on Saturday, dropping the Sooners from No. 3 to 12. That gave the Spartans 12 for this season, one more than last year's total.

MI could be looking at the possibility of John O'Korn being the team's starting quarterback for the remainder of the season. Brian Lewerke was uninspiring at quarterback, going 11-of-22 for 94 yards and a touchdown.

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).

The emotion of the rivalry led to several calls after the whistle, a couple that came on Michigan State turnovers and erased good field position.

MI is still chasing its first Big Ten title since 2004, and at 1-1 with those tough games left, a title will likely have to wait again.

Following Trump's comments, over 250 players in the National Football League knelt as a form of peaceful protest against racial inequality in the United States.
