Upton joins his brother B.J. on the Braves roster.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan, the second-ranked team in the AP poll, is looking for some revenge tonight with a game at home against Purdue.

The organization announced today that Kyle Busch has signed a long-term extension with JGR to keep driving the No. 18 Toyota Camry.
