LANSING, Mich. — A Michigan Supreme Court justice who lost an election still will hear arguments in five cases Monday. Justice Kurtis Wilder finished third in the race for two seats on the state’s highest court. The defeat last week means his term ends at the end of December. SENT: 130 words.


— WINTRY WEATHER-MICHIGAN: Authorities say slippery road conditions amid wintry weather in western Michigan likely were a factor in a two-vehicle crash that left one person dead. Authorities say one vehicle likely lost control due to slippery roads and was struck by an SUV.

— RECYCLING GRANTS: The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality is helping the cities of Detroit and Warren pay for curbside recycling carts.



ANN ARBOR, Mich. — No. 4 Michigan has one last chance to fine tune its team against a lesser opponent before playing championship-caliber teams. The Wolverines (9-1, 7-0 Big Ten, No. 4 CFP) are favored to beat Indiana (5-5, 2-5) by more than four touchdowns in their final home game of the season. Then, things get kicked up a big notch. Michigan closes the regular season at No. 8 Ohio State, desperately hoping to beat its rival on the road for the first time since 2000. If the Wolverines finally win in the Horseshoe, they will advance to the conference championship for the first time. And, a Big Ten title would likely put Michigan in the College Football Playoff.

LINCOLN, Neb. — Nebraska’s offense has generated more than 450 yards in seven straight games, something not even the powerhouse Tom Osborne teams of the 1990s did. If the Cornhuskers put up the same numbers Saturday against Michigan State’s stout defense, it will be another sign first-year coach Scott Frost’s up-tempo spread option is a force in the Big Ten just as it was when he was at Central Florida in the American Athletic Conference.
