STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Coach Jim Harbaugh has been banned from Michigan’s three remaining regular-season games by the Big Ten for a sign-stealing scheme that has rocked college football.

Harbaugh was disciplined by the conference less than 24 hours before the Wolverines play No. 9 Penn State on the road in their toughest matchup of the season.

His team has a shot to win a third straight Big Ten title and the school’s first national championship since 1997.

Michigan could seek a court order from a judge that would put the ban on hold.
