No issue, no Harbaugh.

The Jim Harbaugh-less Michigan Wolverines defeated Penn State 24–15 in a Big Ten game thanks to a strong defense and a relentless rushing offense, maintaining their perfect record and postseason hopes.

With just 60.6 yards allowed per game, No. 9 Penn State (8-2, 5-2) had the best running defense in the country going into the contest. However, the running game for Michigan, which was led by Donovan Edwards and Blake Corum, destroyed the Nittany Lions defense for 227 yards and three scores.

Drew Allan and company had a difficult time getting by since the Wolverines defense only allowed 74 passing yards and forced two turnovers.

The Nittany Lions scored too little, too late, but it was the most points Michigan had conceded all season.

“I want to thank Coach Harbaugh. I love you man,” said fill-in coach Sherrone Moore, who was crying during his post-game interview on Fox. “This one is for you.”

Since the hearing for the temporary restraining order is scheduled to take place before the Wolverines’ next game against Maryland, No. 2 Michigan (10-0, 7-0) will now concentrate on attempting to get Harbaugh back on the sidelines.
