Michigan State shakes the Big House, gives Michigan first loss of year

Michigan State has been the kryptonite of Michigan over the past few years and kept that same trend going last night when they made the short trip to Ann Arbor.

The Spartans put together one of their best performances all year by topping No. 7 Michigan 14-10 in devastating fashion.

The difference maker in this game was a 14-play stretch at the end of the fourth quarter in which Michigan second-string quarterback John O’Korn attempted 11 passes and only completed one.  Three of the passes were intercepted. The rain definitely played a factor as many pass attempts from both teams were unsuccessful.

This marks the eighth time Michigan has lost to Michigan State over the past decade; the fourth time in the five years head coach Jim Harbaugh has been at the helm.

From a macro level, this blows open the Big Ten and gives Penn State or Wisconsin a clear road to the college football playoff. With the Nittany Lions and Badgers being the only undefeated teams left in this conference, they have a chance to run the table straight to a playoff berth. Granted, they don’t stumble on any opponents in the process.

This is much easier said than done as they have to play Michigan and Ohio State following a bye week next weekend.

For Michigan, they are definitely going to have to bounce back next week at Indiana.
