MI finished last season by losing three of its last four games, but more painful to Wolverines fans is that Harbaugh's success against the school's biggest rivals has been scarce. Michigan State has downed Michigan seven times in the past nine years.
NOTES: The Wolverines now lead the series 69-36-5, but the Spartans have won eight of the last 10 matchups. They're the team on the upswing again.
Alabama (6-0, 3-0) had rolled past Vanderbilt and MS by a combined scored of 125-3 over the last two weeks, but got much more of a test from the young Aggies.
Saturday night, we learned that Michigan still has a Michigan State problem. MSU high tailed their way back to East Lansing last night with a 14-10 win knowing that they came into the Big House and stole a game from a better team. The big thing: he didn't turn the ball over. MI needed a miracle of its own on Saturday to beat the Spartans, but it wasn't to be.
This is the Spartans' first time in the polls since October 2016.
Car PLOUGHS into pedestrians in London
The UK is now under a "severe" level of threat of terror attack, according to the MI5 Security Service's rating system. The police confirmed the incident while noting that the driver of the auto had already been arrested.
Faced with a similar punt situation, Michigan State did what Michigan couldn't in 2015 and successfully got it away, into the end zone for a touchback. With Wilton Speight sidelined, John O'Korn will start at quarterback for the Wolverines.
Then O'Korn found a wide-open Eddie McDoom ... but he dropped the ball. Brett Askin is a MI fan from Toronto, Ontario who said that "crazy stuff happens, it is what it is".
Michigan's success so far this season is due, in large part, to its phenomenal defense.

Michigan's only touchdown came in the third quarter with a 1-yard run from Khalid Hill.
Astros: Game 3 lineup will feature postseason legend Carlos Beltran
Through two innings the 2015 AL Cy Young Award victor had thrown 48 pitches, given up three hits, two walks and an earned run. Doug Fister has been named as Boston's Game 3 starter, ending speculation on who would follow Game 2 starter Drew Pomeranz .
Saturday's game was the first time that MI took to the field since President Donald Trump's controversial remarks in which he crudely criticized players in the NFL who kneel during the national anthem. Michigan State's Madre London, filling in for LJ Scott, had a 50-yard run and finished with 59 yards rushing on 10 carries and had a TD reception.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Nick Chubb ran for two touchdowns and 138 yards, and fifth-ranked Georgia routed Vanderbilt 45-14 Saturday despite missing three players from the Bulldogs' stingy defense. And after nearly 40 minutes of gametime, Michigan finally found the endzone after a pair of 18 and 17 yard pass plays led to a first-and-goal from the half-yardline, 14-10 Michigan State. He was just 11-for-22 through the air for 94 yards and a touchdown.
O'Korn passed for 198 yards on 16-for-35 passing with three interceptions.
Lewerke appeared in four games a year ago (two starts) as the broken leg against MI cut his season short. No. 21 Michigan State has made last season's 3-9 record look like an aberration.
Jim Harbaugh's arrival attracted attention, locally and nationally, and his fans were confident he would find a way to beat the Spartans unlike his predecessors Brady Hoke and Rich Rodriguez.
Anti-nuclear group awarded Nobel Peace Prize
The creation of ICAN was inspired by the success of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines, Nobel Peace Prize victor in 1997. If this weren't enough, US President Donald Trump is expected next week to withdraw his endorsement of the Iran nuclear deal.
