After nearly two decades of almost complete domination, heartbreak and humiliation, the University of Michigan finally found a way to beat its archrival Ohio State. The win sends the Wolverines (11-1) to the Big Ten championship game in Indianapolis for the first time ever and keeps the school’s bid for a first-ever College Football playoff berth alive. It was also coach Jim Harbaugh’s first victory over Ohio State since returning to his alma mater in 2015.

The New York Yankees should consider changing the “shave your beard” policy. The “Yankee Way” just feels so outdated. Players are more outspoken than ever. And that’s not always a bad thing. Recently, there’s a picture with Aaron Judge with a beard and it looks great on him. Yankees need to give some freedom and change these rules.

It’s early in the season, but Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls are the best team in the East so far. Also, they are very exciting to watch. Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan, perhaps the NBA’s most potent fourth-quarter duo. Kyle Lowry, one of the craftiest point guards still making life miserable for you and your coaching staff. Heat defeated the Bulls 107-104 on Saturday night.

Edmonton Oilers defeated the Las Vegas Knights, 3-2. Oilers got goals from Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Zach Hyman, and Jesse Puljujarvi — all on rapid counter attack plays — to open a 3-0 lead. Mikko Koskinen took care of the rest with a top notch display of goaltending. With the road win coupled with Calgary’s home loss to Winnipeg, the Oilers moved back into first place in the Pacific with 30 points in 20 games.
