Wilton Speight 'Likely' Out For Season With Broken Vertebrae

Justice Hill

Five different Buckeyes scored a rushing touchdown, and J.T. Barrett added three scores through the air as well.

Michigan: The Wolverines miss Speight more than expected.

Forget the overreactions about Harbaugh's rating - over, under, proper - that's another distraction.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, MI is favored at home, as the Wolverines are getting odds of -10 points against the Spartans. And even though Ohio State has that tough loss to Oklahoma on their resume, they've torn through everyone else with the rise of the freshmen sensation J.K Dobbins. That's nothing more than an attention-grabber for angst or a hot seat that just isn't there. The Spartans have held Iowa and MI to a combined 20 points and have allowed 14 or less points in three of its four games this season overall.

In the short term, the offense is the issue. Iowa's defense stood strong, forcing a turnover-on-downs from Oklahoma to seal the game. A handful of turnovers and penalties are partly are to blame for the Wolverines' ultimate defeat as John O'Korn took to the field as quarterback, taking over for the injured Wilton Speight, and throwing for three costly interceptions in the second half. Those are his fault, but it's not like the Wolverines are putting him in position to succeed. The senior often started running before he needed to.

Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. will have surgery
He missed the first game and the result was a lack of offensive firepower and set the tone ofr a what the season would hold. He tried to resuscitate the Giants' season with a 48-yard touchdown that gave them the lead early in the fourth quarter.

The No. 21/22 Spartans (4-1, 2-0 Big Ten) return to action Saturday, Oct. 14 to take on Minnesota (3-2, 0-2) at 8 p.m.in Minneapolis. That's not an excuse for Michigan's game play, however. Probably not. But, you never know. MI still can't run the ball when it matters - they averaged 2.6 yards per carry.

Michigan State ran the ball well in the first half, gaining 112 yards on the top rushing defense in the nation.

"It's not over. We've got a long season left", he said. "Just with the social injustice in the world and a few things that have happened with racism and things like that". It might happen against IN next week. They have one better win, though (at Notre Dame) and Alabama hasn't done anything to move down yet. Michigan's defense will need to provide plenty of help, and it can. O'Korn was 16 of 35 for 198 yards with three interceptions. The Spartans held on from there, and it worked.

In 2015 the Spartans also found the end zone using a creative play call from Warner. It didn't work, and the Wolverines punted. The Wolverines are 1-0 in the Big Ten 2-2 against the spread.

The 17th-ranked Wolverines (4-1, 1-1 Big Ten) will have all week to work on a plan to have their offense help them beat IN (3-2, 0-2) on the road Saturday. Bachie ripped the ball away from U-M running back Karan Higdon, and Frey pounced on it in Wolverines territory.
