Michigan is coming off a highly emotional three-overtime victory on the road against Rutgers last weekend. Throwing Cade McNamara in at quarterback seemed to do the trick, as the Wolverines were getting shutout before making the switch. He accounted for five total touchdowns and 260 yards through the air. It was an effective outing for the redshirt freshman, and he will look to keep the momentum going.
Meanwhile, James Franklin has yet to find a victory this season. The Nittany Lions have had some bad luck with injuries, with the latest coming from star tight end Pat Friermuth being out the rest of the season. Before that, running back Journey Brown medically retired. Then the backup, Noah Cain, got injured and is now out for the rest of the year. The lone glimmer of hope on this year’s Penn State team has been wide receiver Jahan Dotson, who has 31 receptions for 527 yards and six touchdowns.
It should be an interesting showdown in Ann Arbor today. Let’s get to the facts of the game.
