Penn State did get one big play from Sean Clifford to set up a touchdown but it was the lone spark in the game for James Franklin’s team. The Wolverines got the ball back after that score with a 13-7 lead and were marching down the field when Penn State’s defense showed up in a big way.
All of a sudden, it’s 14-13 Penn State despite being dominated on the stat sheet. The Nittany Lions do need to be more consistent offensively but now have some breathing room. It’s essentially a whole new game now and Penn State has played much worse than Michigan. The Wolverines did settle for some field goals early in the contest and they’d like to have those drives back at this time.
