HAIL TO THE ... UH, THIS IS AWKWARD
A 21-14 loss to Northwestern - at home - left Michigan with eight losses for the first time in its 129-year history. The Wolverines (3-8, 2-5 Big Ten) have also lost five games in Ann Arbor, another school record. ``I'm sick to my stomach right now,'' senior safety Brandon Harrison said. The good news: only one game remains in Rich Rodriguez's first season. The bad news: it's at No. 10 Ohio State. ``If we can come out and beat O-State that would clear everything up,'' Harrison said.

Penn State coach Joe Paterno may have hip replacement surgery following the regular season. After the Nittany Lions beat Indiana 34-7, the 81-year-old coach said he would not be on the sidelines for next week's regular-season finale against No. 15 Michigan State. ``I'm probably going to have to get something done with this thing as soon as the Michigan State game is over, the next day probably,'' Paterno said. ``I'm probably going to get a hip replacement or something like that, I don't know.''

UPS AND DOWNS
