Saturday’s game was not short on intrigue, and the nation was tuned in to see it all. It was a top-10 game between divisional rivals, but, of course, the drama went deeper this week.

Michigan was playing its first game since a suspension for Jim Harbaugh was handed down by B1G commissioner Tony Petitti. Despite that suspension, Sherrone Moore was able to rally the team and produce a big road win to remain undefeated.
