Michigan, apparently concerned about running behind other Big Ten schools in arrests the last two years, took a big leap forward in the conference standings with the jailing of two football players.
Running back Fitzgerald Toussaint was arrested Saturday for alleged drunken driving and suspended indefinitely. Defensive end Frank Clark was arrested for allegedly stealing a MacBook Air in June.
As a school, Michigan now has six arrests in the last two years – tying the Wolverines for fourth in the Big Ten with Iowa, Michigan State, Penn State and Ohio State. Purdue and Illinois continue to lead the conference with nine apiece, followed by Nebraska with seven.
