A few afternoon notes from ESPN's Stats & Information group.

OHIO STATE-MICHIGAN

Michigan's longest losing streaks vs. one opponent

1. Minnesota, nine games, 1934-42
2. Cornell, seven games, 1889-94
3. Ohio State, five games, 2004-present
4. Purdue, five games, 1962-66
5. Army, five games, 1945-54

PENN STATE-MICHIGAN STATE

Most 10-win seasons

1. Joe Paterno, 20
2. Bobby Bowden, 18
3. Tom Osborne, 15
4. Paul "Bear" Bryant, 14

Michigan State's defense has epitomized the team's up-and-down season. The Spartans have been solid at home but shaky on the road.
