ANN ARBOR, Mich. Cheap Jerseys . -- College footballs winningest program might have just had its worst win. Fitzgerald Toussaint scored a go-ahead, 2-yard touchdown with 2:49 left and No. 11 Michigan made a desperately needed stop on the final play to hold on for a 28-24 victory over Akron on Saturday. Michigan (3-0) avoided getting upset at home -- as it did against Appalachian State and Toledo -- by a Mid-American Conference team with three straight one-win seasons that hasnt won a road game in nearly five years and was expected to lose by more than five touchdowns. Barely. "This is embarrassing for the University of Michigan football team," offensive tackle Taylor Lewan said. The Wolverines trailed twice in the second half -- including with 4:10 remaining when Kyle Pohl threw a 1-yard TD -- and allowed the Zips (1-2) to get to the Michigan 4 on the last play of the game. On the third straight snap inside the Michigan 5, Pohl was hurried and hit by Brennen Beyer and that led to an incomplete pass in the end zone as time expired. "We almost lost to Akron, no disrespect to Akron," Devin Gardner said. Gardner had a lot to do with that. He had a career-high three interceptions and fumbled. "I dont care if we are playing Saline High School or the Super Bowl champs, you cant turn the ball over," Michigan coach Brady Hoke said. Akron was very close to going ahead in the final minute, but wide receiver Jerrod Dillard couldnt come down with a high pass that went through his hands in the end zone, and receiver L.T. Smith was stopped at the 2 by two defenders. "Ive been fortunate to have some big wins in my career, but that wouldve been the biggest," said Akron coach Terry Bowden, who went 11-0 two decades ago at Auburn. "Im sorry for our players. They worked so hard and been through so much, but I told them they had the chance to play the game of a lifetime and they did and they played the game of a lifetime. "Im sure down the road in their lives theyll look back and cherish that more than the misery theyre in right now." Michigan won its 17th straight at home for the longest streak among BCS-conference teams and its best since winning the same number in a row from 1976-78. Akron has lost 28 straight road games, the longest skid for visitors in the top tier of college football since Kansas State dropped 30 in a row from Nov. 9, 1985 to Nov. 2, 1991, according to STATS LLC. The Zips, though, thought this would be their day. "I knew we could beat them," Pohl said. The Wolverines said the right things about respecting and focusing on Akron after beating rival Notre Dame in front of an NCAA-record crowd last weekend, but they didnt look like they prepared very well and failed to make adjustments during the game. And, Gardner led the way. He ran for a 36-yard score and threw a 33-yard pass to Jehu Chesson in the third quarter to put Michigan up 21-10, but was 16 of 30 for 248 yards with a lot of mistakes. Gardner had turnovers on three straight drives late in the first half and the last two set up Akron for field goal attempts -- both of which were missed -- as Michigan had a tenuous 7-3 lead at halftime. The fourth-year quarterback, who accounted for five TDs in the 41-30 win over the Fighting Irish, threw his third interception in the fourth quarter and it was returned 27 yards by linebacker Justin March to let the Zips pull within four points. "I made a lot of bad decisions, probably my worst game ever," Gardner said. After Michigan went three and out, Pohl drove the Zips to the Michigan 2 and they came away with nothing because he was picked off in the end zone by Jarrod Wilson. The Wolverines could only get one first down on their next drive, then Pohl gave Akron a 24-21 lead on a pass to Tyrell Goodman. The Big House, which was eerily quiet for much of the afternoon when fans werent booing, erupted in a collective cheer when Toussaints plunge put Michigan up 28-24. It got quiet again as Akron picked apart Michigans defence, which failed to pressure Pohl very often, before the maize-and-blue clad followers were able to exhale when the clocks had zeroes and the football was on the turf. "Yeah, we won the game," Lewan said, sounding and looking furious in a postgame news conference. "Were 3-0, thats great. It was embarrassing." NFL Jerseys China Authentic . He says so-called TRT is only one problem and he wants to go even further than the ban. "Its about time," St-Pierre told reporters at a promotional event in Montreal on Friday. "I think its a good thing. Cheap NFL Jerseys China . Peter Gammons, an analyst for Major League Baseballs network and website, drew the ire of hockey fans on Sunday when he criticized the two NHL teams on Twitter for their physical game the night before. . The Barrie Colts defenceman, who impressed many with his play for Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championship, is the top-ranked skater in the February rankings. He has 19 goals and 24 assists for 43 points in 45 games with the Colts this season.KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Royals agreed to a $32 million, four-year contract with left-hander Jason Vargas on Thursday, trying to fill the void in their rotation created by Ervin Santanas free agency. Vargas was 9-8 with a 4.02 ERA in 24 starts for the Angels last season. He was 6-4 with a 3.65 ERA before going on the disabled list with a blood clot in his arm that required surgery. Kansas City was searching for a veteran to replace Santana, another former Angels pitcher who rediscovered himself in Kansas City. Santana went 9-10 with a 3.24 ERA last season, driving up his price in free agency to the point where the Royals are unlikely to sign him. "Our medical team felt very comfortable, our scouting judgment was very sound, with the length of the contract as well. It all kind of lined up together," general manager Dayton Moore said. "We felt very confident and secure in making him a Royal." Vargas, a soft-tossing lefty who turns 31 in February, gets $7 million next season, $8.5 million in each of the following two years and $8 million in 2017. He had shown a propensity for giving up home runs, but that should be mitigated by cavernous Kauffman Stadium. That was the case with Santana, who also allowed homers by the bushel in Los Angeles before getting things under control in Kansas City. "The biggest thing for me was being in a place where I knew I would be at for a significant amount of time, and with an organization where I felt comfortable," Vargas said, "and I believed in what theyre doing and continuing to get better, and Kansas City was definitely at the top of that list going into the off-season." Vargas will be joining a club that finished 86-76 last season, its best finish since 1989, and was in contention for a playoff berth until the final weeks of the season. "What excited me about the team is how Ive seen the team grow and progress a lot over the last four or five years," Vargas said. "Their defence is spectacular and Im just hoping I can be a piece of the puzzle that helps move us forward." The Royals designated catcher George Kottaras for assignment to make room on thee 40-man roster. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys. Vargas isnt the sort of splashy signing that will make Royals fans salivate, but he does solidify the back end of whats expected to be a young rotation. James Shields returns next season as their clear-cut ace and Jeremy Guthrie provides a dependable No. 2 starter. Danny Duffy is a near-lock to make the rotation out of spring training after he worked his way back from Tommy John surgery this past season, leaving one more spot in the rotation up for grabs among a handful of in-house candidates. Among those would could land the fifth spot are Wade Davis, Luke Hochevar and Will Smith -- all former starters who spent time last season in the bullpen -- and hard-throwing right-hander Yordano Ventura, who made his big league debut last season and dazzled in three September starts. Most people within the organization believe that Ventura will be in the rotation at some point next season, even if he doesnt earn a spot in spring training. Theres also a chance that Kyle Zimmer, their former first-round pick, will be ready at some point next season. Zimmer finished last season at Double-A Northwest Arkansas. "Theres still ways we can improve our team, through the rotation, trying to add another bat, we feel like we have some quality young pitchers who are going to be competing for spots," Moore said. "Theres still a lot of opportunity out there to improve our starting pitching." Vargas, who missed the 2008 season with a torn labrum in his hip, is 51-58 with a 4.30 ERA in parts of eight seasons spent with the Marlins, Mets, Mariners and Angels. His best season came two years ago, when he went 14-11 with a 3.85 ERA in 33 starts for Seattle. If nothing else, Vargas should be able to eat innings. He was limited to 150 by his surgery last season, but went over 200 innings each of his final two seasons with the Mariners. "You try to get 200 innings out of your starters and Jason has been able to do that," Moore said. "Hes been one of the more consistent pitchers in all of baseball over the last few years, and we feel like hes right in the prime of his career."
