COLUMBUS — Ohio State’s seniors stepped onto the field at Ohio Stadium for the final time as players and promptly gave themselves a parting gift.

Most of the day off.

Michigan loses its quarterback, then game against Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. — A Michigan season filled with obstacles and misadventure took its most dramatic turn late in the third quarter Saturday.

The Wolverines trailed fifth-ranked Wisconsin 14-10 when Brandon Peters was driven into the ground by Wisconsin linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel. It looked nondescript until Peters didn’t get up.

After a lengthy delay, the Michigan quarterback was hoisted onto a golf cart with a head injury. With the energy draining from UM’s sideline, Wisconsin found little resistance in the fourth quarter en route to a 24-10 victory. FULL STORY ■ GENOA’S DEITER DEVELOPS INTO VITAL COG FOR WISCONSIN

Men’s basketball

BGSU stuns Florida Gulf Coast with comeback, buzzer-beater

BOWLING GREEN — Bowling Green State University men’s basketball coach Michael Huger had a talk with guard Dylan Frye on Tuesday.

“We talked about being the best player, and what comes with being the best player,” Huger said. “You may not have your best game, but you have to have your best finish. He didn’t have his best game, but I’ve seen him enough to put the ball in his hands at game’s end.”

And Frye made Huger into a prophet, sinking a 24-foot 3-pointer just before the final buzzer to lead the Falcons to an 83-80 win over Florida Gulf Coast at the Stroh Center Saturday. FULL STORY/PHOTO GALLERY ■ VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS
