From the preseason to the kickoff of its game against Ohio State on Saturday afternoon, Michigan State has been overlooked in the Big Ten Eastern Division despite losing its only game on a controversial call, while the Buckeyes have enjoyed all the attention. The script had flipped by Saturday evening, however, after Michael Geiger booted home the 41-yard field goal on the last play of the game that propelled the Spartans to a 17-14 victory over Ohio State in Columbus, breaking the Buckeyes' 23-game winning streak.

PENN STATE will assume the role of giant-killer for its regular-season finale Saturday at Michigan State, though it's not a role everyone embraces. "Obviously, it's a very highly ranked team, and they're a great team," offensive tackle Andrew Nelson said Tuesday of the sixth-ranked Spartans. "They just beat Ohio State (17-14, on the road), and that's huge. But the way we're approaching this game, it's the same as any other game. " Uh, really? MSU is 10-1, and on Saturday (3:30 p.m., ESPN)

Penn State's Christian Hackenberg can do some amazing things with his arm and a football - such as the 17-yard throw on a line that he made to tight end Kyle Carter at the far hash against Maryland - that make you say, "Wow!" "There aren't that many quarterbacks on the planet that could have completed that pass," NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said last week. "It was a big-arm throw into a tight window. I watched it back about five times. " But there are other throws that leave Mayock and NFL scouts and observers scratching their heads, such as short patterns and bubble screens on which the ball one-hops to the receiver or sails over his head.

A newcomer who listens to the weekly news conference conducted by Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh must be prepared for a ride down some roads that most head football coaches never travel. The 14th-ranked Wolverines (8-2, 5-1 Big Ten), play Saturday at Beaver Stadium against Penn State (7-3, 4-2). They are coming off a 48-41 double-overtime victory over Indiana that saw quarterback Jake Rudock pass for 440 yards and a school-record six touchdowns. Rudock, a graduate transfer from Iowa, had seven straight games earlier this season in which he did not reach the 200-yard mark for passing.

PENN STATE (7-2, 4-1 Big Ten), whose losses were at once-beaten Temple and at top-ranked Ohio State, toyed with visiting Illinois (4-4, 1-3), 39-0. It was a season high for points for the Nittany Lions, and the most they've scored since Sept. 26 (37-21 against San Diego State). Christian Hackenberg (21-for-29) threw for 266 yards and two touchdowns (both in the first 11 minutes) and also caught a 14-yard TD from running back Nick Scott that made it 22-zip early in the third period.

The 2015 college football season reaches the halfway point with this weekend's games, and we've been sitting here for hours trying to figure out what topics to discuss. We could talk about the four preseason top-10 teams - Auburn, Oregon, Southern California, and Georgia - that have tumbled out of the top 25. Or we could discuss the teams (hello, Temple!) who began the season in Nowheresville and are now in the rankings. Who would have thought in August that the order of Pennsylvania's three FBS teams on the fourth Saturday of October, in terms of season record, would be Temple, Pittsburgh, Penn State?

The Inquirer's Preseason Top 25: 1. St. Joseph (11-0 last season). The Wildcats have won 21 in a row. They are 52-3 since 2010. They've won six state titles in a row. This is the last go-round for senior twins Salaam and A'Laam Horne as well as classmates Derek Lomax, a two-way lineman, and Chris Carey, a linebacker and tight end. 2. Timber Creek (11-1). The Chargers showed well against North Jersey superpower Paramus Catholic in a scrimmage. This team might have South Jersey's top receiving corps, led by Michigan State recruit Cameron Chambers and Old Dominion recruit Noah Ellison.

Cameron Chambers and Ahmir Mitchell swear they are not in a hurry. Chambers says he plans to make the most of his senior football season at Timber Creek. Mitchell says he has the same intentions for his senior season at Cedar Creek. The two talented wide receivers, both of whom have been ranked among the state's most highly-recruited players in the class of 2016, hope to be playing for their high school teams in the sectional championship games in December. They have other plans for January: to be away at college.

Here's how great the NCAA men's basketball tournament is - even the NCAA can't screw it up. For three wonderful weeks every year, the NCAA looks as if it knows what it's doing. And, in this case alone, it actually might. The tournament committee stumbled around a little bit when expanding to 68 equal-but-not-really teams a few years ago. Other than that, the tournament is a model of efficiency and fairness. The move to a geographical pod system for the first weekend's glut of games was brilliant, both because it saves money and because it bolsters attendance by making it more practical to follow one's team.
