No. 7 Michigan seeks revenge against rival Michigan State

08 Octubre 2017, 09:17 | Faron Santos

Lewerke scored a go-ahead TD on a 14-yard run late in the first quarter. That came after MI had only 33 yards to go to reach the end zone.

Saturday night, ahead of their big rivalry game against Michigan State, it looks like a number of Michigan players - around 20 - made a decision to lock arms in a display of unity during the playing of the national anthem.

For the first time since that unforgettable game, the seventh-ranked Wolverines (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten) will host the rival Spartans (3-1, 1-0) Saturday night.

Bachie forced a Ty Isaac fumble and Chris Frey recovered at the MI 46. We had a two-minute drive before the half that was materializing and looking like it was going to get points, we stopped ourselves there.

What the defense didn't do is force a turnover. 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.

One thing we haven't seen from MSU teams in the past is mental mistakes, but again, the Spartans made a lot of careless errors in this game.

Quarterback Wilton Speight was leading the Wolverines as he's thrown 44-for-81 completions which have been good for 581 yards and three touchdowns.

Ohio State moved to 5-1, 3-0.

Yeah, the first half was pretty rough for the Wolverines. O'Korn was initially able to escape, but was quickly stopped. "We hold ourselves responsible and we want to generate those turnovers and make those big plays".

Sophomore offensive guard Mike Onwenu allowed a sack on a critical second down during Michigan's final possession of the second quarter. Michigan's defense is relentless with the pressure they bring and in their pursuit of the ball. However, the Spartans did not get a first down in the second half until 2:54 remained in the game. High winds were also a factor. O'Korn completed just six of those throws. Recognized as one of the best coaches in the game, Harbaugh must beat rivals Michigan State and Ohio State if he wants to seriously contend for a Big Ten title.

O'Korn breathed life into Michigan's struggling offense when he took over for Speight in the Purdue game.

For Michigan, the rest of the season suddenly looks tougher than it may have already been.

Lewerke played against MI past year as a backup, throwing for 100 yards and a touchdown, but broke his leg during the game and missed the rest of the season. O'Korn's mobility helped at times against an oppressive Spartans pass rush, but it also prevented him from letting his receivers get open. The teams traded defensive stands until Michigan State had a chance to run the clock out thanks to a ridiculous run on a broke play by Lewerke. However, Michigan State has won seven of the last nine games. Despite not playing at all until the fourth quarter, Delton led the Wildcats with 79 yards on 12 carries while hitting 2-of-5 passes for 30 yards.

It was just MSU's second first down of the second half.
