SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Running back Devontae Booker had 124 combined yards and a touchdown and Utah spoiled Jim Harbaugh's Michigan coaching debut, beating the Wolverines 24-17 last night. Harbaugh faced many of the same issues the Wolverines had under former coach Brady Hoke (HOHK) after moving to Michigan from the San Francisco 49ers.

MILWAUKEE (AP)— Taylor Jungmann pitched six strong innings and the Milwaukee Brewers finished a three-game sweep of Pittsburgh 5-3, beating the Pirates for the sixth straight time. The loss dropped the Pirates 6½ games behind the NL Central-leading Cardinals.

NEW YORK (AP)— The defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots have their first victory of the 2015 season. A judge overturned star quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension, allowing him to play in the season opener next Thursday night against Pittsburgh. The NFL says it will appeal the matter known as "Deflategate."

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady was not in uniform last night for the New England Patriots' final preseason game, a 12-9 loss to the New York Giants. Several fans chanted "BRADY, BRADY," when the team came out of the locker room into the bowl of the stadium, but the quarterback was nowhere to be seen.

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP)— Fifth-ranked Michigan State opens its season tonight on the road against Western Michigan out of the Mid-American Conference. Western Michigan has never beaten a ranked football team and will need a lot to go its way to change that record.
