ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan took a big step toward reaching the Big Ten championship game Saturday, knocking off Michigan State 12-10 and taking control of the Legends Division for at least a week until it faces Nebraska next Saturday.

The Wolverines showed, though, they have a definite shot to reach the Rose Bowl, not because of anything they did offensively but because of their defense, which is emerging as one of the better units in the Big Ten and perhaps the country.

It is the defense where we start this week’s version of 3 Up, 3 Down.
