Pat Caputo - Eighth time a charm for Dantonio, MSU Spartans

Pat Caputo - Eighth time a charm for Dantonio, MSU Spartans

Saturday is of the utmost importance, and not just because it's the next time MI takes the field.

Saturday's home defeat to the Michigan State Spartans was the latest disappointment for the Wolverines in a big game. He was replaced as starter by John O'Korn. Three of them were intercepted.

Michigan State Spartans running back Madre London (28) rushes in the first half against the Michigan Wolverines at Michigan Stadium.

"We've done it eight times", Dantonio said after the game. After catching a pass, Tigers receiver J'Mon Moore ran to carry the ball toward officials when linebacker Josh Allen appeared to knock the ball out of Moore's hands. "We really were. We needed to score points, and we needed to put some drives together, and that's what we were trying to do".

The Spartans are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

MI got the ball back with 34 seconds left, and the MSU defense held on despite a almost costly late hit by Chris Frey.

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.

The Michigan State Spartans look for a third straight victory to build on their impressive upset over the Michigan Wolverines. The channel streaming service now offers all-new customers a one-week free trial. 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.

The Wolverines' sins, five turnovers, turned out to be more mortal. MI is never out of a game, even tonight with five turnovers the Wolverines were still in it until the final whistle.

In 20 appearances as a MI football player, Harris has eight catches for 50 yards. "We came back out and had a better second half and honored our seniors in the way they should be honored".

Dantonio took over at Michigan State prior to the 2007 season. MI needed a miracle of its own on Saturday to beat the Spartans, but it wasn't to be.

The defense did provide Michigan's biggest second-half spark.

Minnesota has struggled to move the football during it's two-game losing streak, and neither Purdue or Maryland have the defense that Michigan State has. It did force Jake Hartbarger to punt with his earhole in the MI student section. The overnight for the Big Ten rivalry game was 179% higher than Fox's prime time game and 95% and 86%, respectively, higher than Fox's afternoon games, while also earning a 44% better rating than CBS. QB Conor Rhoda connected on 11 of 25 passes for 101 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception in the game while Shannon Brooks led the rushing with 18 carries for 116 yards.

MI fourth-year junior Drake Harris is back on offense, back at wide receiver. It appears he doesn't remotely have the right quarterback.

John O'Korn entered the game with high hopes from MI fans.

ROLLING OUT: Michigan prides itself on playing man-to-man defense.

He's also flirted with the idea of playing both football and basketball at MI, though he'd need Harbaugh's permission.
