Big Ten college football standings and stats ahead of the weekend games. Ohio State edged Michigan State 17-16, while Michigan rallied from a second-half deficit to top IN 20-10.
Next in line: Louisville (9-2), Florida (8-2), Southern Cal (8-3), Florida State (8-3) and Houston (9-2)/Western Michigan (11-0). However, seven straight losses all but ended the season for Michigan State. With those two losses coming to Navy (46-40) and SMU (38-16) the Cougars can't win the AAC West division, let alone the conference title.
The tight ends have been getting more involved and statistically the offense is pretty good, but the Buckeyes have to beat man coverage against the Wolverines, with Meyer stating, "there's no secret that's what they play, they're good players".
"That was a College Football Playoff team right there", linebacker Chris Worley said of Michigan State, a 2015 Final Four participant.
On Friday night, the Apple Cup will determine which team represents the Pac-12 North in the conference title game, as the Washington Huskies visit the Washington State Cougars as a 5.5-point road favorite. Myles Gaskin ran for 127 yards and a 45-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.
Penn State hasn't lost at Beaver Stadium this season and will look to keep that going this week.
Canada open to renegotiating free trade with Trump
NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair, meanwhile, told reporters this in Montreal that Trudeau needs to "stand up" to the incoming president. It's impossible for anyone to really know what Trump's victory means for Canada, Barutciski said.
With a win, the Wolverines would in fact earn a spot in the Big Ten title game and be another victory away from its first conference championship since 2004. Trace McSorley is completing 54.9 percent of his passes for 2,600 yards, 17 touchdowns and five interceptions. Carrington was initially called out of bounds but that call was reversed after a replay showed he got a foot down inbounds. The duo combined for 306 yards and three TDs. It would be No. 1 Ohio State vs. Beat TCU, 31-6. Next: Dec. 3 at Oklahoma. Seriously, that's the two-point play the Wildcats spent all week drawing up?
John Ross caught 12 passes for 95 yards for the Huskies, while Pettis added 105 yards on seven receptions. The Buckeyes' quarterback, T.J. Barrett, was only 10 of 22 yesterday with 86 yards of total passing, though the weather may have been a factor in East Lansing as it was in MI. Later in the first half, Scott broke free for a 61-yard run that set up a field goal.
Cook entered the game needing 19 yards to break Warrick Dunn's 20-year old school record for rushing (3,959) and did so with a 41-yarder in the first quarter.
The Mountaineers' Justin Crawford rushed for a career-high 331 yards on 24 carries. That includes No. 18 Auburn beating Alabama A&M, 55-0 and the Tide's runaway win.
She said the Buckeyes will win by two touchdowns.
Given the stakes and magnitude of the game, ABC moved kickoff from its traditional noon ET slot to a 3:30 p.m. ET start, with 105,708 fans stuffed in the Shoe. Each team has one conference game left. Among the other Tigers to sit out the final home game of the season were running back Stanton Truitt, H-back Chandler Cox and cornerback Carlton Davis. If Nebraska gets quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. back, the team has a real shot at winning. But what if they lose? Fyfe prevailed over Max Bortenschlager in a battle of backup quarterbacks. But when you think of the word in a college football sense, there are only a few teams that even come close in terms of giving that word its true meaning.
