Here is the latest Michigan sports news from The Associated Press
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Karan Higdon ran for a go-ahead touchdown early in the third quarter and Jake Moody set a school record with six field goals, helping No. 4 Michigan beat Indiana 31-20. The Wolverines looked sluggish and it may have had something to do with them looking ahead to next week’s game at No. 9 Ohio State, where they need a win to reach the Big Ten championship game for the first time. The Hoosiers were competitive against Michigan as they have been lately.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Barret Pickering kicked three field goals in the fourth quarter, the last one a 47-yarder with 5:13 left, as Nebraska came from behind to beat Michigan State 9-6. It was the first time Nebraska had won a game without scoring a touchdown since a 3-0 victory over Kansas State in 1937.
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Dylan Larkin scored 4:09 into overtime, Jonathan Bernier stopped 38 shots and the Detroit Red Wings beat the New Jersey Devils 3-2. Larkin got his eighth goal of the season when he converted a 2-on-1 break with Anthony Mantha. It was Detroit’s fifth victory in its last six games.
UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — David Duke scored 20 points to rally Providence to a 76-65 win over South Carolina and into the finals of the Air Force Reserve Tip-Off tournament on Saturday. Alpha Diallo added 17 points, nine rebounds and seven assists for the Friars. Hassani Gravett scored 14 points to lead four players in double figures for South Carolina, which led by nine points early in the second half. Providence will play Michigan for the tournament title.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have promoted wide receiver Andy Jones from the practice squad. Detroit made the move because it will be without injured receiver Marvin Jones on at home against the Carolina Panthers. Jones was previously activated in Week 9 and played against the Minnesota Vikings. He has been on practice squads with the Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys. The Lions also signed linebacker Nicholas Grigsby to the practice squad.
