Michigan QB Wilton Speight 'likely' out for season with broken vertebrae

Michigan QB Wilton Speight 'likely' out for season with broken vertebrae

However, the Wolverines won the most recent contest 32-23. They're the team on the upswing again.

Michigan State: The Spartans have a chance to have a relatively special season in what was expected to be a rebuilding season.

We expect Michigan to squeak out a win, but we like Michigan State against a double-digit spread.

For the first time since that unforgettable game, the seventh-ranked Wolverines (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten) will host the rival Spartans (3-1, 1-0) Saturday night.

The loss snapped Oklahoma's nation-leading 14-game win streak and the Sooners' 18-game winning streak against the Cyclones that dated to 1990.

Though Ehlinger looked every bit like the Next Big Thing in Austin, Texas has had a lot of Next Big Things since Colt McCoy. MI needed a miracle of its own on Saturday to beat the Spartans, but it wasn't to be. As Michigan's coach two years ago, he watched from the sideline as his team botched a punt that would've sealed a win against Michigan State and a potential win turned into an improbable loss as time expired.

O'Korn started against Michigan State, going 16-for-35 for 198 yards with three interceptions.

Then O'Korn found a wide-open Eddie McDoom ... but he dropped the ball. The weather helped, to be sure, but Michigan's defensive backfield - Hill, David Long, Josh Metellus and Tyree Kinnel - continues to improve with its downfield coverage each week. The defense will have it's work cut out for them in that game.

Since Hart famously dubbed the Spartans his "little brother" after a 28-24 comeback win over Michigan State in 2007, Mark Dantonio and his players have used it as fuel. They punted four times and lost two fumbles in the first half, and the Spartans led 14-3 at halftime. Three plays later he connected with wide receiver Sean McKeon for 36 yards, before Michigan State safety Justin Layne punched the ball free and the Spartans fall on it. 14-3 MSU at the half.

Then the rain came.

Clayton Thorson threw for 142 yards and two interceptions while getting sacked four times in another rough outing for Northwestern (2-3, 0-2). They didn't lead again against Dantonio, who has taken control of a rivalry that has historically been tilted in Michigan's favor. 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.

Sam Ehlinger made his third start at quarterback for Texas on Saturday night.

The Michigan Wolverines were already without starting quarterback Wilton Speight, and it appears as though the signal caller won't be returning anytime soon. He carried Texas on his back for nearly the entire game, plus two extra frames, hitting 30-of-50 throws for 380 yards with two touchdowns and one interception while leading the 'Horns with 107 yards on 20 carries.

MI started fifth-year senior John O'Korn in place of Speight on Saturday. He's now 1-4 as the school's head coach against MSU and Ohio State. And it means Michigan's Big Ten title drought may extend to 13 seasons.
