Penn State 7, Michigan 0: The Lions quickly drove 66 yards for a TD on their second possession. Sean Clifford hit Jahan Dotson for a 37-yard gain to the Michigan 17, then on the next play Clifford connected with tight end Pat Freiermuth on a 17-yard score with 5:59 left in the first.
Penn State 14, Michigan 0: Michigan went for it on fourth-and-3 at the PSU 36 but came up empty. The Lions took over, and Ricky Slade busted through the middle for a 44-yard run to the Wolverines’ 20. Clifford converted a third-and-8 with a tough 10-yard run up the middle to the 8. Clifford kept it himself for a 2-yard score with 14:56 to go in the half.
Penn State 21, Michigan 0: Tariq Castro-Fields intercepted a screen pass to give PSU possession at the Michigan 49. Clifford hit KJ Hamler for 18 yards to the 32, and three plays later, Clifford lofted a pass to Hamler in the end zone for a 25-yard score with 7:22 to go in the half.
Penn State 21, Michigan 7: The Wolverines put together a big 75-yard TD drive to get on the board, ignited by a 30-yard catch-and-run pass from Shea Patterson to Nico Collins. Michigan scored on a weird play with a reception and bobble that was caught by another receiver who scored, but the Wolverines were flagged for an ineligible receiver downfield. But PSU was flagged for pass interference on the next play, moving Michigan to the 12, and Zach Charbonnet ran it in from 12 yards on the next play with 2:55 to go in the half.
Penn State 21, Michigan 14: The Wolverines started establishing things through the air and on the ground in a 65-yard TD drive late in the third. Charbonnet opened the drive with a 14-yard run and finished it by gaining 28 yards on his last three carries. He scored on a 12-yard run with 1:05 to go in the quarter.
Penn State 28, Michigan 14: Michigan’s Lavert Hill was flagged for a huge defensive holding call that gave PSU a first down on a third-and-11 play. Clifford converted a third-and-5 from his 39 with an 8-yard pass to Hamler. On the next play, Clifford aired it out to a wide-open Hamler for a 53-yard TD with 13:14 remaining.
Penn State 28, Michigan 21: The Wolverines answered with a 75-yard TD drive to get right back in the game. Patterson hit Ronnie Bell on a bubble screen that turned into a 35-yard gain after a missed tackle. That gave Michigan first-and-goal at the 6, and after three stops by the PSU defense, Patterson barely snuck in from a yard out on fourth down with 8:48 to play.
