Two skids down, 1 to go for No. 20 Michigan

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Michigan has taken care of two skids in two seasons under Brady Hoke.

The Wolverines beat Michigan State 12-10 on Saturday, ending a four-game losing streak in the series, and ended the regular season last year with their first win over rival Ohio State in eight years.

Michigan - ranked No. 20 in The Associated Press college poll Sunday - has one more drought it desperately wants to end.

The Wolverines haven't won a Big Ten title since 2004. They can take a big step toward winning the Legends Division and playing for the conference championship Dec. 1 in Indianapolis with a win Saturday night at Nebraska.

Michigan State, meanwhile, has some work to do just to be eligible for a bowl this season after being ranked No. 10 last month.

Juan Soto crushes a homer in the first at-bat of his first-ever start

Juan Soto, the highly-regarded 19-year-old Nationals' prospect, got his first major league start of his career tonight. 

How did it go, you ask? Surely it would take Soto - who was in Single-A less than two weeks ago - some time to adjust? 

What were you doing at 19??
