detroit tigers logo  TIGERS WIN! 1-0. They got their first hit in the 9th inning.  Sanchez – no hitter thru 6 innings (he threw 116 pitches).  He had 12 strikeouts and 6 walks.  Sanchez with FOUR STRIKEOUTS in the first inning.  A record!   Penn State wins 43-40 in FOUR overtimes!  Exciting game, big 4th down conversion by Penn. St.      Spartans knocked off  Indiana this afternoon.  Central won at Ohio, 26-23, but Western got skunked 33-0 by Buffalo.    Notre Dame had a bye week.  My Badgers had an easier time than expected with Northwestern, winning 35-6.  The Detroit Lions head to Cleveland for the usual 1 PM start.  Cleveland has won 3 in a row.  I see Suh is 100K poorer.  NASCAR stopped in Charlotte NC.   Finally, an interesting article on how President Teddy Roosevelt helped to promote football in the early days.

    Yeah, Boston can hit and has home field advantage, but with Sanchez, Scherzer and Verlander pitching 6 of the 7 games, I like the Tiger’s chances.

  3. Dan says:

    Tigers pitching needs to keep the Boston hitters hitless! Tigers need to continue to get their bats going! Miggy goes yard twice! Michigan will win in a close one at PSU. 27-24! Spartans will win. Go Tigers! Go Blue!

    1. Bill Steffen says:

      Badgers waste the Wildcats – Northwestern had only 10 first downs, 44 yards rushing in 25 attemps (the Badgers had 286 yards on the ground). Northwestern was only 2 of 17 on 3rd down conversions. Wisconsin had a huge advantage in time of possession.

  9. Brian (Grandville) says:
