It was another stumble for Michigan (7-5, 3-5) under coach Rich Rodriguez, now 0-3 against the Buckeyes and just 15-21 overall with the Wolverines.

No. 11 Michigan State 28, Penn State 22

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) _ Michigan State claimed at least a share of its first Big Ten title since 1990 after winning at blustery Beaver Stadium.

Edwin Baker ran for 118 yards and a touchdown, and Keshawn Martin’s 35-yard reverse deep in Penn State territory set up another early score for Michigan State (11-1, 7-1 Big Ten).

Kirk Cousins threw for 152 yards and two touchdowns to B.J. Cunnigham, and the defense held off a fourth-quarter charge by penalty-prone Penn State (7-5, 4-4).

Penn State scored 19 fourth-quarter points, and had a chance for a comeback after Matt McGloin found Derek Moye for a 4-yard touchdown pass with 56 seconds left.

Michigan State recovered the ensuing onside kick to finally seal the win.

No. 15 Missouri 35, Kansas 7

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Blaine Gabbert directed scoring drives on the Tigers’ first two possessions and later scored on a 1-yard run in the 119th edition of college football’s second-oldest rivalry.

Missouri held its archrivals to 141 yards, the fewest they’ve allowed a conference opponent in the Big 12’s 15 seasons.

De’Vion Moore scored two touchdowns for the Tigers (10-2, 6-2 Big 12), who drew 95 yards in penalties in the always-passionate border showdown but still dominated. No. 16 Nebraska’s victory over Colorado on Friday had made it impossible for the Tigers to finish higher than second in the Big 12 North.

The Jayhawks (3-9, 1-7) ended a miserable season in Turner Gill’s first year as head coach and have lost 16 of 19 after opening 2009 with five straight wins.

No. 13 Virginia Tech 37, Virginia 7

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) _ Ryan Williams ran for two touchdowns and No. 13 Virginia Tech won its 10th consecutive game and seventh in a row over Virginia.

Tyrod Taylor threw for 176 yards and a touchdown and became the career passing yardage leader for the Hokies (10-2, 8-0 ACC). Virginia Tech also became the first team to finish the regular season unbeaten in Atlantic Coast Conference play since Florida State in 2000.
