Marquette, MI – 9/5/17 – The Marquette Redmen football team had a tough task on Friday night as they welcomed in the Traverse City Central Trojans. The Trojans came out strong and never let off the gas pedal as they cruised to a 42-14 victory. Marquette quarterback Brendan Kaski has a solid outing in his second start going 10-15 for 100 yards. Andrew Gale led the Redmen on the ground running for 68 yards. Trojans quarterback Tobin Schwannecke was the star of the night throwing 16-20 for 153 yards and a couple touchdowns. The Redmen now look to this coming Friday as they travel to Sault Ste. Marie for a Great Northern Conference match-up.


The Michigan Wolverines came out sluggish in their first game of the season but a strong second half led them to a 33-17 victory over the Florida Gators. Michigan went into halftime trailing 17-13, but scored three times in the first six minutes of the second half. Wolverines Wilton Speight was 11 of 23 with 181 yards and a score. The Wolverines now look to their home opener this coming Saturday in the first ever match-up with the Cincinnati Bearcats.

The Detroit Tigers took one on the chin Monday afternoon losing their fifth straight game in a loss to the Kansas City Royals 7-6 at Comerica Park. Tigers trotted out newcomer Artie Lewicki for his first major league game, going five innings giving up five runs on eleven hits. Royals got home runs from Eric Hosmer, Salvador Perez and Alcides Escobar. The Tigers are now 0-5 since trading Justin Verlander and Justin Upton.
