Game Six: Michigan at Penn State (10/12/13)

Michigan won its 86th homecoming game on Saturday behind the might of Devin Funchess, who discovered he may actually be a receiver wearing a tight end number. This week the Wolverines travel to Penn State for an early evening game in a whited-out Happy Valley. Matt Millen will be part of the broadcast crew as well, so prepare for lots of sentences beginning with "this kid..." and "Seven Nation Army" on repeat.
