MSU and UM Win Big

Unbeaten Michigan State overpower Pitt, 38-23
The Pitt Panthers must have compared notes after their 38-23 drubbing at the hands of Michigan State yesterday before 47,956 at Heinz Field because they all seemed to have come to the same conclusion.

"We didn't make any plays," said Pitt quarterback Tyler Palko.

"We just didn't make any plays," added linebacker Clint Session.

"We didn't make any plays," said Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt.

Michigan overwhelms Notre Dame
No. 11 Michigan put a big blue bruising on the second-ranked Fighting Irish in a 47-21 rout Saturday -- the most points scored against Notre Dame at home in 46 years.

``They deserve their just due,'' Irish Coach Charlie Weis said. ``I think it's important to understand that team just came and whupped us pretty good.''

Chad Henne threw three touchdown passes to Mario Manningham, and Michigan intercepted three passes by Brady Quinn, forced him to fumble and shut down the rest of the Irish offense.

Michigan ended a two-game losing streak against the Irish and a three-game slide at Notre Dame Stadium. The win likely silenced doubters who questioned Michigan after a 7-5 season and two less-than-impressive wins to open this season.
