ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Devin Gardner came crashing down against Akron after riding a high with five touchdowns against Notre Dame.
He had a career-high three interceptions and fumbled, giving the Zips a chance to pull off an upset for the ages against the Wolverines.
After throwing two touchdown passes and running for a score in a 28-24 win, Gardner was one of his harshest critics.
"I made a lot of bad decisions," he said. "Probably played my worst game ever, and won't happen again."
He threw a career-high four touchdowns and ran for a score the previous week, leading Michigan to a 41-30 win over the rival Fighting Irish.
Michigan (3-0) moved down to No. 15 in this week's Associated Press college football poll from 11th, going into its first game road this season on Saturday at Connecticut (0-2).
Huge rating: Defending national champion Alabama's win over Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M has drawn the highest preliminary television rating for an afternoon regular-season college football game on CBS in 23 years.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide's 49-42 victory Saturday over the No. 6 Aggies earned a 9.0 overnight rating and 21 share. The network said Sunday that was the best since a 10.1 for Miami-Notre Dame on Oct. 20, 1990.
Station apologizes: An Orlando television station has issued an on-air explanation for why it's airing the struggling Jacksonville Jaguars while many NFL fans probably would have preferred seeing the Denver Broncos-New York Giants game, a possible Super Bowl preview featuring the Peyton and Eli Manning.
WKMG TV issued the scrolled message on Sunday. It read that NFL policy states the station must carry all Jags away games. At the end the message said: "We apologize for any inconvenience."
Stadium safe: When football fans returned to Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday, they noticed a few changes.
The wobbly railing that collapsed after last week's game had been replaced and bolted down. The awning above the visiting team's tunnel was raised about two feet and more security staffers were stationed around the tunnel.
Set noise record: The fan group attempting to set a Guinness World Records mark for loudest stadium says it has established a record during Sunday night's game between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco.
The group, called Volume 12, announced on its Facebook page it had set the mark late in the first quarter. The decibel reading taken during a sack of San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the first quarter -- following a one hour weather delay -- was 131.9 decibels.
Play suspended: Jim Furyk will have to wait one more day to try to end three years without a PGA Tour victory.
The final round of the BMW Championship was suspended because of steady rain that left too much water on Conway Farms.
Pettersen wins: Norway's Suzann Pettersen beat teen star Lydia Ko of New Zealand by two shots to win the Evian Championship and clinch the second major title of her career.
Preseason opener: Rookie defenseman Ryan Murray scored 4:38 into overtime to lift the Columbus Blue Jackets past the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-4 on Sunday night in the preseason opener for both teams.
Breaks Japan record: Former major leaguer Wladimir Balentien hit his 56th and 57th home runs on Sunday, breaking the Japanese single-season record set by legendary slugger Sadaharu Oh 49 years ago.
Balentien hit the record-breaking three-run homer in the first inning of Sunday's game, sending the ball over the left-field wall at Tokyo's Jingu Stadium to give his Yakult Swallows an early lead over the Hanshin Tigers. He then added a solo shot in the third for No. 57.
