Brian Lewerke ran for a touchdown and threw for a score in the first half and the Spartans held on to beat the seventh-ranked Wolverines 14-10 on Saturday night.

IN (3-2, 0-2 Big Ten) has had recent opportunities against the Wolverines (4-1, 1-1). Winovich already has five sacks in the first four games and will need to have a big game in order for the Wolverines to slow down this Spartan offense. Coach Jim Harbaugh seems to be holding out hope MI quarterback Wilton Speight can return with to play this season after injuring his back. Ty Isaac and Sean McKeon fumbled.

"We knew they were going to take shots regardless of the weather and everything like that", Dowell said. That's not an excuse for Michigan's game play, however. Let's not forget that Michigan State is probably an undefeated Big Ten contender right now if it didn't turn the ball over three times against Notre Dame.

Based on the Odds Shark website's collected odds, the Wolverines are -11 favorites to win on the point spread, or anywhere from -420 to -450 favorites on the moneyline.

John O'Korn tried to throw a fade pass in the corner to tight end Sean McKeon, which, by itself, isn't a bad play call.

Saturday's game was the first time that MI took to the field since President Donald Trump's controversial remarks in which he crudely criticized players in the NFL who kneel during the national anthem. As far as the over/under points total goes, 40.5 points for the complete game is the latest number for bettors to contemplate as of this report.

Sustaining an Elite LevelPenn State's defense was dominant in the win against the Wildcats, with Franklin noting that as a whole, its executing well in all areas. "We'll leave it at that", he said, and then proceeded to knock off an undefeated MI team on the road for the second time in the last three years. Speight is expected to miss several weeks with his injury.

Behind O'Korn on the depth chart is redshirt freshman Brandon Peters and true freshman Dylan McCaffrey, Harbaugh said last week.

There was fair warning at halftime that a giant storm was headed to Ann Arbor, possibly carrying lightning that would delay the game.

But after running the ball fairly well and utilizing short passes over the middle to get to the 11-yard line, MI abandoned everything that got them there and went with a play that hasn't worked all season. Oruwariye made a terrific grab on an interception inside the Penn State 30 in the first quarter Saturday to thwart one of Northwestern's few scoring chances.With cornerback Grant Haley and safety Marcus Allen, who are playing at an all-conference level, Penn State ranks fifth in the nation in pass efficiency defense with nine interceptions and three TD passes allowed."We have some experience (in the secondary)", Oruwariye said. Karan Higdon was consistently gaining yards, 5.4 per attempt, but had just 12 carries. Chris Evans also had 12 carries, but finished with just 27 yards rushing for the Wolverines. Up next is a game at Minnesota followed by a visit from IN and trip to Northwestern before the Penn State-Ohio State 1-2 punch.
