The Michigan vs. Notre Dame football game may not have started until the sun went down, but the parties started soon after it came up. Along State Street, Hill Street and other areas on and around campus and Michigan Stadium, there were parties aplenty.
Daniel Brenner | AnnArbor.comNo coach will turn down a win, but Ann Arbor Gabriel Richard coach Brian Lemons admitted his team made too many mistakes to win Saturday’s matchup against Whitmore Lake. The Irish overcame those struggles and defeated Whitmore Lake 25-14, to improve to 2-0 on the season, but for Lemons, there is plenty of work to be done.

Joe Hermitt | PennLive.comSTATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Eastern Michigan struck first, but Penn State struck last and far more often on Saturday as the Nittany Lions steamrolled the Eagles, 45-7.
Eastern scored the first points of the game when linebacker Hunter Matt recovered a Christian Hackenberg fumble and returned it 11 yards for a score. Saline native Dylan Mulder added on an extra point to give the Eagles a 7-0 lead with 4:01 left in the first quarter.
The early misstep seemed to wake up the young Hackenberg, who would go on to throw for 311 yards and a touchdown. Zach Zwinak and Bill Belton each ran for a pair of scores for Penn State.

This deal was originally played a few years ago. After West opened one spade and East responded one no-trump, South thought about a two-spade Michaels Cue-Bid, showing at least 5-5 in hearts and a minor. But that would have forced his side to the three-level, and he had a sixth heart. So he reasonably overcalled two hearts. When West doubled, though, South sensed that he was in a bad contract. (This would have gone down two or three, minus 500 or 800.) So South ran to three clubs. Then East, who had two wonderful aces, decided to try for the magic plus 200 on a partscore deal.
