ANN ARBOR, Mich. Dustin Byfuglien Jersey . -- Jim Harbaugh is stumping for another Heisman Trophy candidate, shifting his lobbying efforts from Jabrill Peppers to Wilton Speight.The steady quarterback finished with a career-high 362 yards after accounting for three touchdowns and setting a school record in the first half, helping No. 2 Michigan build a huge lead before coasting to a 59-3 win over Maryland on Saturday. Harbaugh said Speight is playing so well he should be mentioned as someone who could be voted the nations most outstanding college football player.Its time to throw his hat into the ring, Harbaugh said.Speight helped the Wolverines (9-0, 6-0 Big Ten, No. 3 CFP) scored touchdowns on all five of their drives in the first half.You need a great quarterback to succeed the way we are, said Jake Butt, who had five receptions for 76 yards and set a school record for yards receiving (1,521) in a career by a tight end.Speight, cool in the pocket and crafty with his feet when he had to move, completed 19 of 24 passes and had a 10-yard TD run. He set a first-half team record with 292 yards passing, connecting on 13 of 16 passes before halftime.Thats the best half of football Ive ever seen a Michigan quarterback play, Harbaugh said.And while Speight said it was cool, Harbaugh put him in the conversion for the Heisman, he doesnt want to take away from Peppers chance to get invited to the award ceremony for what he does on defense, offense and special teams.Jabrill deserves to be there in New York, Speight said.The Terrapins (5-4, 2-4) had no answer for Speight. On offense, they moved the ball with some success without making a mark where it mattered on the scoreboard.Marylands Adam Greene missed a 29-yard field goal, hitting the right upright, after his team drove to the Michigan 1 only to lose 10 yards on two plays and a penalty in the second quarter. The Terrapins came up 1 yard short of a TD at the end of the first half. They failed to convert a trio of fourth downs.Its disheartening that we didnt compete, Maryland coach DJ Durkin said Its hard for me to say that and to even acknowledge that.THE TAKEAWAYMaryland: Durkin knows a lot about Michigan because he was its defensive coordinator last season, but his knowledge didnt seem to help the overmatched Terrapins very much on defense.Nothing in terms of preparation was affected by coming back, Durkin said. It was business as usual.Michigan: The Wolverines found a way to get receiver Jehu Chesson more involved. He matched a season high with five receptions and had a season-high 112 yards receiving, including a 33-yard TD catch that made it 35-0 toward the end of the first half and a 40-yard reception on a double-pass in the first quarter.POLL IMPLICATIONSTop-ranked Alabama won at No. 15 LSU, so the Wolverines will stay where they are in The Associated Press College football poll and College Football Playoff rankings.TAKING HIS TURNMichigans DeVeon Smith had a season-high 114 yards rushing and a career-high three TDs, getting 19 carries while the rest of the Wolverines combined for 20 carries.HARD KNOCKSMaryland quarterback Perry Hills was knocked out of the game by Chase Winovich, who hit Hills and drove his left shoulder into the turf in the second quarter. Caleb Rowe replaced him and threw an interception on his first pass of the second half. It went directly toward safety Delano Hill, who had another interception later in the game.Rowe, who was 12 of 23 for 203 yards, helped Maryland throw for 289 yards -- the most Michigan has given up this season.It felt good to help the team, Rowe said.UP NEXTMaryland: Playing a second or three straight games against teams currently in the top 10, the Terrapins host No. 6 Ohio State before going to No. 9 Nebraska.Michigan: The Wolverines go to Iowa for a potential test before closing the regular season at home against Indiana and against the rival Buckeyes on the road.---More AP college football at and ;Connor Hellebuyck Jersey .Y. -- Marcell Dareus and the Buffalo Bills defence made life miserable for Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco. Cheap Jets Jerseys . Datsyuk will miss Tuesdays game against New Jersey and could be sidelined longer, while Cleary will likely miss at least the next three games. Its been an injury-plagued season for Datsyuk, who has suited up for just 39 games. http:///...osh-morrissey-jersey .

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Capitals look to build on Wednesdays blowout of the Pittsburgh Penguins when they continue their five-game homestand Friday night against the Detroit Red Wings.Washington (10-4-2) moved into a second-place tie with the Penguins in the Metropolitan Division with a resounding 7-1 win. The victory followed a four-game stretch in which the Capitals had mustered only five goals.Now the task will be to follow it up against Detroit (8-8-1), losers of two straight.Theres been times in the last week or so where portions of games havent been that bad. Were doing a few good things but it just wasnt sustained enough where tonight I thought we were pedal to the metal the whole way, Matt Niskanen said after Wednesdays victory. Got a nice little homestand here ... hopefully look for some good results here.Linemates Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie scored two goals apiece, while Dmitry Orlov, Justin Williams (his second goal of the season) and Alex Ovechkin (his first goal in five games) also tallied. After five games without a power-play goal, Washington netted two against Pittsburgh.Backstrom, of one the games best assist men, has three goals in two games.Hes got a terrific shot, Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. Its quick, its accurate and its very deceptive, so yes, I think anytime he gets a chance, (he should) not be afraid to shoot it because he shoots it pretty well.After sitting for two games, a well-rested Braden Holtby lost his bid for his first shutout with just over three minutes remaining. Hes 6-2, with a 1.97 goals- against average and .931 save percentage versus the Red Wings.Deetroit learned this week it will be without forward Darren Helm for at least six weeks after he suffered a shoulder injury in Tuesdays 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay. Jacob Trouba Jersey. He had four goals and three assists over 17 games. Riley Sheahan, still looking for his first goal of the season, could move into the third-line center spot.With Darrens injury, that could give some more opportunity to Riley, Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill told the Detroit Free Press. He had lots of opportunity early, and then his opportunity went away here in the last little bit. Its hard to produce when you dont get the opportunity.Goalie Petr Mrazek (4-5-1, 3.16) has allowed four goals in each of his last four starts. Jimmy Howard (4-3, 1.80) could get the start Friday night, though hes 3-1-3 with 3.15 goals-against average and .890 save percentage versus the Capitals.Jimmy has played really good, Blashill said. Hes done what he has had to do in terms of putting up the numbers when given the opportunity, in terms of winning hockey games when you can and giving ourselves the best chance to win. Jimmy has made a good statement.Whoever starts faces a Washington team that has three points in its last two games and appears locked in again on offense.Weve just got to get the joy back in our game a little bit, Trotz said. We know we can play more consistent, but at the same time understanding that weve got to keep building our game in certain areas.Ovechkin has 10 goals and eight assists in 17 games versus Detroit. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
