Watch our Michigan-Penn State preview

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

You bet Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has an interest in the Michigan State at Ohio State game. His squad still has a shot to win the East. To do so, the Wolverines need to win at Penn State on Saturday, but they also need the Buckeyes to beat the Spartans tomorrow. That would set up a winner-take-all clash Nov. 28 in Ann Arbor for the East title.

Survive and advance was the theme last weekend in Big Ten play. Michigan State lost Connor Cook to injury and proceeded to have a season-low 262 total yards of offense in a win against Maryland.

The Wolverines’ first win in program history in Rec Hall over No. 4 Penn State was not just a school first, but a huge addition to Michigan’s tournament resume.

Now the Wolverines will see their RPI rise and have a chance to earn a .500-or-better record in the conference if they can win two of their final three.

First impressions in the world of college basketball can often be deceiving, especially with questions surrounding the quality of many unknown non-conference opponents. Michigan State has certainly passed its first major test of the season, and that answered a lot of questions about Tom Izzo’s Spartans. Indiana continues to excite me with an upbeat style of play and a bright green light for anyone who can drain a 3-pointer. Then there is Wisconsin, who many already count out because of the opening day loss to Western Illinois.
