Michigan demoralizes Penn State 42-7

It was all Michigan in this one

Dustin Johnston- Maize n Brew

The No. 5 Michigan Wolverines faced the No. 14 Penn State Nittany Lions on Saturday afternoon at The Big House, and a good old fashioned butt-whooping occurred.

First Quarter

- It isn’t a slow start for the Michigan offense in this one. They move down the field with ease on their first possession, an 8 play 76-yard drive that ends with a Shea Patterson read-option 1-yard run. Michigan leads 7-0

Second Quarter

- Midway through the second quarter Shea Patterson throws a beautiful pass on the run to Donovan Peoples-Jones for a 23-yard touchdown. Peoples-Jones also displays excellent footwork on the score. Michigan leads 14-0

Third Quarter

- Michigan has its longest drive of the game, a 13 play 90-yard drive that lasts over 7 minutes. Patterson finds Zach Gentry on a play-action pass from 7 yards out. Michigan leads 21-0

- Penn State is trying to force things now, and QB Trace McSorley throws a pass directly to CB Brandon Watson, who takes it to the house for a 62-yard touchdown. Michigan leads 28-0

Fourth Quarter

- Michigan is starting to embarrass PSU, and Michigan’s running game is really churning. Karan Higdon gets a 4-yard TD run and now has 132 yards rushing on the day. Michigan leads 35-0

- The domination continues. Chris Evans finds paydirt, a 1-yard TD. Michigan leads 42-0

- The shutout is no more, QB Tommy Stevens takes a keeper for a 8-yard score. Michigan leads 42-7
