ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — With Jim Harbaugh nowhere in sight and a scandal hanging over their heads, J.J. McCarthy and No. 3 Michigan stared down No. 2 Ohio State and ran the school’s win streak against the Buckeyes to three games with a 30-24 victory on Saturday in maybe the most consequential game in the history of the storied rivalry.
The winner of the Ohio-State-Michigan matchup will represent the East in the Big Ten championship game and is all but assured a spot in the College Football Playoff if it beats Iowa next week.
UM earned the school's thousandth victory this weekend. Win 1,001 could be even sweeter, but only if it's against that team from Ohio.

Michigan will be without coach Jim Harbaugh on Saturday against No. 9 Penn State after a judge did not issue a ruling on the school’s attempt to at least temporarily lift the Big Ten’s penalty against the Wolverines for a sign-stealing scheme.
Michigan responded by promising to fight the ruling with a court order, and added that the timing of the conference's actions coming down on Veterans Day - a court holiday, was by design.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — No. 2 Michigan is seemingly unfazed by an NCAA investigation into allegations that they broke rules with a sign-stealing scheme that could potentially penalize the program and coaching staff.
Connor Stalions, the low-level Michigan football staffer who is at the center of an NCAA investigation into impermissible scouting of opponents and sign stealing, has resigned, the school said Friday.

The Michigan football coach did address one allegation that's bubbled up amid the latest controversy: that the university had rescinded a contract offer to him.

Eleven schools in the Big Ten said they had found evidence that Connor Stalions, an analyst at Michigan, purchased tickets to at least one of their games over the past three seasons, ESPN reported Monday, citing unidentified sources.
