Game ball for week 5 loss to Michigan State

09 October 2017

This will be the 47th meeting between the two schools with Iowa carrying a slim 23-22-2 in the all-time series advantage but MSU is 11-10, in East Lansing. He also gained 61 yards on 15 carries. On the ensuing Monday, Dantonio, then in his first season as head coach, told MI to watch its back, endearing himself to Spartan nation.

"We talk about this every week".

"We played smart with the weather", Dantonio said. "We definitely played it beforehand". McDoom certainly had a chance to redeem himself and make a play that would've assured him being remembered favorably for weeks, months and maybe years to come.

Michigan quarterback John O'Korn threw a trio of second-half interceptions in poor conditions while Michigan State opted to keep the ball mostly on the ground.

What direction will MI (4-1, 1-1) go from here?

It was a crushing blow to the Wolverines' championship aspirations. And he helped make Jeff Brohm's first Big Ten win with the Boilermakers (3-2, 1-1) a memorable one. "We can't let this bring our team down for the rest of the season". But do the Wolverines have enough offensive pop to beat the big boys? Speight had struggled throughout the season as he only completed 54.3% of his passes while throwing two interceptions. I think people are going to start to pay attention a little bit, but we know it's one week at a time. As bad of a game as this was, I still have to give a game ball out. "We'll learn from it, we'll grow from it and we'll move on".

Paddock's girlfriend unaware of shooting plan
Marilou Danley released a statement through her lawyer after she was interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation . According to TMZ , who first reported the information, Paddock did not appear for his reservation.

MI scored its only touchdown midway through the third quarter on Khalid Hill's 1-yard run to cut it to 14-10. Savoy went 53 yards on a slant pattern to open the scoring midway through the first quarter, and the Hokies (5-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) never trailed.

O'Korn was picked off on three straight possessions, but the Spartans failed to cash in on any of them. They punted four times and lost two fumbles in the first half, and the Spartans led 14-3 at halftime.

MI could not overcome many mistakes, including five turnovers and several costly penalties. Lewerke scored from 14 yards when he scrambled up the middle and dived into the end zone. Being down 14-3 at halftime didn't bode well for MI, as throwing the ball was likely to be hard in heavy rain. A 30-yard pass from Lewerke to Darrell Stewart moved the Spartans into MI territory. Saturday night continued the latter theme. Many predicted it, although they also threw Michigan's wholly revamped defense into the equation as well. A three-game stretch against Rutgers, Minnesota and Maryland may salvage a good season for MI, but those final two matchups against Wisconsin and Ohio State could be brutal.

The Wolverines now travel to IN to face the Hoosiers.

By the start of the fourth quarter, everyone in the Big House was drenched, and two in-state rivals were separated by four points-the Paul Bunyan Trophy was up for grabs, as long as anyone could get a grip on it.
