7-1, 1st in Big Ten - East

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Statement from MSU on Michigan pregame incident: "Both teams were distributed pregame timing sheets and were in communication earlier in the week about Michigan State's pregame tradition of walking the field upon arrival to Spartan Stadium. There has never been an on-field issue with this tradition in the 12 years under head coach Mark Dantonio. The timing of Saturday's pregame tradition did not change from previous games, nor did the communication change between both schools. ... Michigan was on the field prior to 10 a.m. as previously agreed upon, but when multiple MSU staff members asked both U of M student-athletes and staff members to please move off the field for the pregame field walk, this did not occur."

Updated Big Ten projections after OSU's upset loss last night. Michigan is now the favorite and Purdue (!) has a 1 in 20 shot at the conference title.

After Ohio State lost to Purdue, Notre Dame now has the best Strength of Record in the country. This is purely about accomplishment -- how difficult was it to achieve the record you have? Harder to go 7-1 with LSU's schedule than undefeated with Clemson or Alabama's so far.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

A loss to Purdue didn't eliminate the Buckeyes, but Ohio State's chance to reach the playoff dropped 47 percentage points. Meanwhile no one improved its playoff outlook yesterday more than Michigan, who is now the fourth-most likely team to reach the CFP.

Most important takeaway for each top 25 team

Alabama dominated again, while the Wolverines look like CFP contenders after taking down Michigan State. Ohio State? Not so much. What else have we learned in Week 8?

Shea Patterson is making plays Michigan couldn't make in the past several years. Wolverines are looking like they'll survive a game that was pointed toward another upset, and the new QB had been the difference.
