Wild weekend for state of Michigan's sports teams

It was expected after their embarrassing loss at Purdue Saturday night but for the first time this season, the Ohio State Buckeyes have fallen in the rankings and what a fall it was in the latest AP Top 25.

Purdue coach Jeff Brohm is mobbed by fans after the Boilermakers upset No. 2 Ohio State, 49-20.

In some shocking news heading into the Michigan vs Michigan State football game on Saturday last week, wide receiver Tarik Black was dressed and traveled with the team.

Against Purdue, Ohio State's rushing attack was a no-show with a total of 76 yards and the longest run of the game being 11 yards. "This win is one that will go in the history books, and we look forward to seeing what else the Boilermakers can do as they go head-to-head with two other ranked opponents in the coming weeks".

"They handed it to us past year". "Number one, off the top, is our red zone offense". That way, Ohio State's only loss would have been to the Wolverines.

Michigan State Athletic Communications Associate Director Ben Phlegar said in a statement both teams were given pregame time sheets and "were in communication earlier in the week" about MSU's pregame walk upon arriving at Spartan Stadium from the Kellogg Center. But teams ranked No. 2 in the country with aspirations of playing for the national championship do not expect to lose by four touchdowns to a team that lost to Eastern Michigan.

His biggest game this season was an 84-yard performance against TCU, in a game where he also had several costly drops.

Purdue jumped out to a 7-0 lead with 1:10 left in the first quarter on a 13-yard touchdown pass from Blough to Issac Zico. Purdue had racked up 500 yards or more in three of its last four games. "A lot of unforced mistakes, bad penalties, Haskins overthrowing a wide-open receiver who had nobody within 20 yards of him - (it was) an easy touchdown, except he just made a bad pass".

The Wolverines can't move up too much, but they will have chances to do that against the Nittany Lions and Buckeyes next month. "I think we had opportunities to get right back in it". It gives Black another week to rest and prepare for Penn State as he could possibly be a full participant in practice next week and be out there. The No. 25 Cougars hosted No. 12 OR and were 3-point-favorites, despite being 13 spots lower in the AP Top 25 poll.
