  Michigan St. suffers worst loss to Michigan under Dantonio, 44-10 If the largest margin of defeat of Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio’s tenure against Michigan wasn’t bad enough, things turned from bad into worse. More chippiness: U-M, MSU flagged for several unsportsmanlike penalties in rivalryHis players unraveled unlike they have in his previous 12 rivalry games against U-M, a reversion to the lack of discipline the Spartans showed under previous regimes. Physically, mentally and emotionally.On the first play of the fourth quarter, trailing 27-10, Dantonio decided to go for it on fourth-and-1. He substituted junior A.J.

  Penn State 'living for the underdog role' ahead of matchup with No. 2 Ohio State Can the Nittany Lions and their struggling defense survive at No. 2 Ohio State? They are talking belief in their preparation.Many don't see their trip to No. 2 Ohio State that likely will decide the Big Ten East representative in the conference title game ending up particularly close on the scoreboard.

Ohio State 7, Michigan 6: It was the J.K. Dobbins show on the Buckeyes' opening drive. Dobbins accounted for 79 yards in the 75-yard drive, including a 34-yard run (in which he fumbled and the ball bounced straight back to him in stride) and a 28-yard reception on third-and-14. He capped it with a 5-yard run. The drive: 9 plays, 75 yards, 2:53.

Ohio State 14, Michigan 6: The Wolverines blew a coverage and Justin Fields made them pay, connecting with a wide-open Chris Olave for a 57-yard TD with 1:27 remaining in the quarter. Fields was 3-for-9 for 43 yards before that pass. The drive: 6 plays, 81 yards, 2:27.

Ohio State 14, Michigan 13: Cue the track meet. Michigan needed three plays to respond to OSU's score: a 9-yard pass to Hassan Haskins, a 41-yard pass to Sean McKeon and a 25-yard TD pass to a wide-open Donovan Peoples-Jones with 19 seconds remaining. Nordin made the kick. The drive: 3 plays, 75 yards, 1:08.

Second quarter

Ohio State 21, Michigan 13: An error in technique put Ohio State in position to score. Michigan's Ambry Thomas and Khaleke Hudson bumped each other off their pursuit on defense, leaving Garrett Wilson wide open for a 41-yard catch-and-run on a dreaded crossing route. J.K. Dobbins found the end zone on a 6-yard run at 10:12. The drive: 9 plays, 75 yards, 5:07.

Ohio State 28, Michigan 13: Self-inflicted wounds led to a 10- or 14-point swing for Ohio State. First, Shea Patterson fumbled  the ball away in the red zone at the Ohio State 16. Michigan responded by forcing the Buckeyes into a punting situation, but Khaleke Hudson and Jordan Glasgow jumped offside on the punt, giving the Buckeyes a new set of downs. Justin Fields immediately connected with Garrett Wilson on a 47-yard pass, and J.K. Dobbins punched it in from 5 yards for his third TD of the day, at 3:15. The drive: 9 plays, 84 yards, 3:17.

Third quarter

Ohio State 42, Michigan 16: Justin Fields left the field with an apparent left leg injury but was not down and out. He was replaced by backup Chris Chugunov for seven plays.
