Here is the latest Michigan sports news from The Associated Press
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — C.J. Stroud threw six touchdowns passes as No. 5 Ohio State blew out No. 7 Michigan State 56-7. The freshman threw for 432 yards in nearly in just short of three quarters. He also became the likely front-runner for the Heisman Trophy, overshadowing Michigan State’s Kenneth Walker, who came in as the nation’s leading rusher. Walker gained just 25 yards. Ohio State polished its polished their College Football Playoff resume and served warning to No. 8 Michigan ahead of the annual rivalry game next week.
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Mike Sainristil made a one-handed catch in the end zone for a second-quarter touchdown, Hassan Haskins scored two TDs of his own, and No. 8 Michigan did its part to raise the stakes of next weekend’s showdown with Ohio State, routing Maryland 59-18 on Saturday. The Wolverines host the Buckeyes next week, and the winner will go to the Big Ten title game. Michigan hasn’t won the conference since 2004 and hasn’t beaten Ohio State since 2011. If the Wolverines were looking ahead to that matchup, it didn’t affect their play much this weekend. Maryland didn’t reach the end zone until Michigan was up 31-3 in the third quarter.
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Marcus Bingham Jr. had 19 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks as Michigan State battled past Eastern Michigan 83-59 despite shooting a season-low 44% from the field. Malik Hall added 15 points, Max Christie 13 and Gabe Brown 10 for the Spartans, who made 30 of 68 shots, including 4 of 17 from behind the 3-point arc. Noah Farrakhan led the Eagles with 14 points and six rebounds, Monty Scott added 10 points with five assists and Colin Golson had 11 points off the bench.
GLENDALE, Ariz, (AP) — Clayton Keller scored 25 seconds into overtime to give the Arizona Coyotes a 2-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night. Ryan Dzingel scored his second goal in as many games for Arizona, and Scott Wedgewood had 33 saves. Dylan Larkin scored his ninth goal of the season for the Detroit Red Wings, and rookie Lucas Raymond got his 12th assist. Alex Nedeljkovic was seldom tested in net in the first two periods, but Dzingel tied it at 1 with a tip-in with less than seven minutes left in the third period. Nedeljkovic had 27 saves.
